The Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports announced on April 30 that art performances to celebrate the 46th anniversary of southern liberation and May Day will be cancelled in a bid to prevent the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, reported NDO.

A series of art and cultural performances was scheduled to take place during the four-day holiday in central areas of 30 districts and towns in Hanoi, but they will not be held so as to ensure health safety for the community.

*Vice Chairman of Hanoi People’s Committee Chu Xuan Dung also held an online meeting with Hanoi agencies and departments on April 30 to discuss measures to deal with the newly infected COVID-19 cases in the community in Hanoi.

The three new infected cases found in Dong Anh District; thus the locality was urged to urgently carry out tracing and take test samples of related people while performing centralised isolation of all people who have had close contact with the infected cases. Meanwhile, F2 people were asked to conduct self-quarantine at home.

Dung noted that all related forces must concentrate on their tasks and are not allowed to miss out any related cases to accurately and quickly trace and isolate related people.

Vietnam documented 14 cases of COVID-19 in the past 12 hours to 6pm May 1, including 11 imported cases and three local infections in the northern province of Ha Nam, VNA cited the Health Ministry.

The national count reached 2,942, with 1,587 locally-transmitted cases.

Three patients were given the all-clear on May 1, raising the total number of recoveries to 2,549. The death toll remains at 35. A total 38,623 people are being quarantined nationwide.

Amid various complicated developments relating to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Hanoi has raised the level of COVID-19 prevention and control.

After locally-infected cases were detected in late April, localities around the country are tightening epidemic prevention measures.

Tests on Indian experts quarantined in a hotel in the northern province of Yen Bai and a staff member at the hotel, who contracted COVID-19, showed they were infected with the virus variant B.1.617.2 now spreading in India.

The Health Ministry urges all people to strictly follow the 5K motto: Khau trang (wearing facemask) – Khu khuan (disinfecting) – Khoang cach (keeping distance) – Khong tap trung (no gathering) – Khai bao y te (Making health declaration), so as to contain the pandemic./.
