Despite Ho Chi Minh City’s Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control ordering bars, karaoke parlors and discotheques to halt operations starting April 30, many have clearly ignored the rules, according to a VCT News report on May 2, with many venues on Pham Van Dong Street (Go Vap District) disregarding the ruling.
