HNP - The Hanoi Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control issued Official Letter No. 17/CV-BCD on May 13 on temporary suspension of high-risk activities in the capital, as part of its efforts to combat the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

The city planned to establish inspection teams to check the observance of the instructions of the Central level and the municipal authorities.
At the same time, strict punishments will be imposed on organizations and individuals that violate regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control.
Heads of branches, levels and localities are responsible to the chairman of the municipal People’s Committee if any violations occur under their jurisdiction.
