Meanwhile, outdoor tea stalls, coffee shops and eateries will remain closed along with non-essential services such as nightclubs, bars and karaoke parlours.

Municipal authorities asked local departments of education and training to ensure safety for the returning students. It was also important to define the list of students who have returned to Hanoi from Covid-19-hit areas.

The city has considered the reopening of religious ceremonies.

According to Hoang Duc Hanh, deputy head of the Hanoi Department of Health, since February 16, Hanoi has seen no new Covid-19 locally-infections. The lockdown has been removed for all of 18 areas related to Covid-19 infection.
