Hanoi (VNA) – Hanoi has stopped examining people and vehicles entering or exiting the city when they pass pandemic checkpoints, the municipal steering committee for COVID-19 prevention and control said on October 15.
Traffic police now only stand guard at checkpoints to ensure traffic safety and deal with any problems arising.
Police and other forces like military, traffic inspectorate, and health authorities have maintained the operation of 54 pandemic checkpoints across Hanoi, including 21 on national highways and 33 on smaller roads connecting the city with other provinces, the steering committee said.
Over the past two weeks, Hanoi has recorded just four COVID-19 cases in the population of 8,367,300. Up to 98 percent of the local residents aged 18 and above have been given at least one shot of COVID-19 vaccine.
Given this, the pandemic risk in the city now is assessed as low, which means Hanoi is a " green zone " and in the "new normal" status, according to the Hanoi Centre for Disease Control./.
