HÀ NỘI All karaoke venues, bars and discotheques in Hà Nội suspended operations from 0:00 on February 1 in a bid to contain the spread of coronavirus.
The move followed the municipal People’s Committee’s decision amid the complicated developments of the pandemic following the recent increase of community transmissions.
All restaurants are required to disinfect their space regularly, arrange seats to ensure social distancing and ask all staff to wear masks.
Residents have to limit gathering in crowds when it is not necessary. Those organising events must strictly ensure preventive measures.
The city authorities have also emphasised that people should limit organising festive activities.
The capital city has to date recorded 15 community cases, all are related to the two new outbreaks detected in Chí Linh City of Hải Dương Province and Vân Đồn District of Quảng Ninh Province.
In another development, Quảng Ninh Province is speeding up the collection of samples for COVID-19 testing of workers at Vang Danh Coal Company, after one employee tested positive for the virus on January 31.
The northern province has reported a total of 25 community-transmitted cases over the past five days. — VNS
