Hanoi to continue social distancing until August 22

The Hanoi Standing Party Committee has agreed to a proposal by the municipal People's Committee to extend the social distancing order by another 15 days, starting from 6 a.m. on August 8, the Hanoi Party Committee said Friday.

A press meet Friday afternoon is expected to announce the Covid-19 fighting results following Hanoi's two-week social distancing period from late July, as well as future plans to fight the pandemic.

Hanoi began its 15-day social distancing order starting July 24 amid rising coronavirus threats in the capital, requiring people to stay home and only go out for basic necessities such as buying food or medicines or to work at factories or businesses that are allowed to open.

Despite said measures, the city has been recording around 50-70 new cases a day on average and unearthed several clusters, including high-risk areas like wholesale markets and supermarkets.

Hanoi has officially recorded 1,762 local Covid-19 cases since the fourth coronavirus wave struck Vietnam in late April.
