Hanoi to ease corona curbs this week


Vietnam’s capital Hanoi will further ease its coronavirus restrictions from this week, the government said, with new cases on the decline and the majority of its adult population partially vaccinated, Reuters reports.

Most construction projects can resume from Wednesday, authorities said, adding further easing would follow, with average new daily cases down to just 20.

So far 94 per cent of Hanoi’s adult population of 5.75 million has received one shot of a Covid-19 vaccine.
