Since February 16 Hanoi has not recorded new cases of COVID-19 and basically has controlled the situation, but risks are high as the pandemic still exists.
Risks come from foreign experts who enter Vietnam for work, illegal entries via land border, and students from other provinces who are returning to Hanoi for resuming study.
During the Lunar New Year holiday which falls in mid-February, the capital authorities advocate restrictions on movement, Viet Nam News said.
Passengers and drivers of public transport must follow prevention measures. A list of passengers should be compiled with full name, address and phone number for interprovincial transportation while ensuring a safe distance for passengers.
