The division will be based on the level of pandemic outbreak risk as well as characteristics of each locality such as geography, population and production, thus ensuring pandemic control measures and maintaining production, VNA reported.
Accordingly, the Prime Minister’s Directive 16, and stricter pandemic prevention and control measures and travel restrictions will continue to be applied in zone 1, comprising 10 districts - Tay Ho, Ba Dinh, Cau Giay, Hoan Kiem, Dong Da, Hai Ba Trung, Thanh Xuan, Ha Dong, Thanh Tri and Hoang Mai; and parts of the five districts of Nam Tu Liem, Bac Tu Liem, Hoai Duc, Thanh Oai, and Thuong Tin.
As reported by VOV, stricter COVID-19 prevention measures remain in place. Among the measures, local residents are required to stay indoors except in case of emergency. They are provided with ticket coupons to go shopping on selected days during the week.
Transport connecting with zone 2 and zone 3 will be tightly controlled with 23 checkpoints. Authorities in zone 1 are requested to make careful preparation to avoid disruption of supply chains of food and necessities.

Meanwhile, the PM’s Directive 15 will be carried out in zone 2 which covers five districts - Long Bien, Gia Lam, Dong Anh, Soc Son and Me Linh. Higher measures will be applied in areas with higher risks to match each locality’s production situation.
Safe production will be maintained in zone 2 using “three-on-site” or “one route-two destinations” models.
Meanwhile, looser measures will be implemented in zone 3, covering agricultural production areas and industrial parks and clusters with low population density including 10 districts - Ba Vi, Son Tay, Phuc Tho, Dan Phuong, Thach That, Quoc Oai, Chuong My, Ung Hoa, My Duc, and Phu Xuyen, and the remaining parts of the five districts in zone 1 - Nam Tu Liem, Bac Tu Liem, Hoai Duc, Thanh Oai and Thuong Tin.
The capital city has also designed regulations on inter-regional operation mechanisms with an aim to tightly controlling zone 1 as well as the travel flow from zone 1 to zone 2 and zone 3, and ensuring the continuity of production and supply chain.
This is the fourth time Hanoi has decided to extend its social distancing in order to halt the spread of the virus in the community.
In an effort to early detect and separate F0 cases from the community, the city will conduct extensive testing from now till September 5. It is anticipated that approximately one million samples will be taken, with priority to be given to residents living in lockdown or high-risk areas.

After three times of applying social distancing along with mass testing, the city has found that infections mostly concentrated in inner districts, while lower risks are seen in other localities.
The division into three zones is expected to help the city prevent the spread of the pandemic and focus on stamping out COVID-19 in high-risk areas.
Hanoi has recorded between 60-80 new cases daily on average during the past week. There are many clusters of infections and their sources of infection remain unknown.
Vietnam confirmed 14,922 new local Covid-19 cases Friday, the second highest single-day tally since the beginning of the pandemic. The southern localities of HCMC and Binh Duong remain the hardest-hit nationwide. Meanwhile, the situation in Hanoi has been getting complicated, with new clusters detected even though the city is undergoing prolonged social distancing period.
