Citizens of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City were able to breathe a little relieved after the Prime Minister (PM) of Vietnam, Nguyen Xuan Phuc, allowed an end to the practice of social distancing that has lasted for 22 days in both cities amid the Corona virus pandemic (COVID-19). This step was welcomed by residents.
PM Nguyen released the latest directive allowing Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to stop the practice of social distancing. Which was imposed for 22 days since April 1.
Or in other words, social distancing in the two cities ended on Thursday (4/23) local time. But there are still special rules that must be imposed in both cities.
Shops, street businesses and non-essential services are permitted to reopen. But they still have to obey PM Nguyen’s directives about stopping mass events. Gatherings exceeding 20 people in one location and associations exceeding 10 people outdoors.
Residents also still have to maintain a minimum distance of 2 meters from each other in public areas.
