VTV.vn - The Ministry of Transport (MOT) issued an express dispatch to ask agencies and units in the sector to suspend all flights, road transport routes and trains for passengers to and from Da Nang City for 15 days from midnight on July 28.

The MOT has assigned Vietnam General Department of Roads (VNR), Vietnam Aviation Administration, Vietnam Railway Administration, Vietnam Maritime Administration and the Vietnam Inland Waterway Administration to coordinate with the relevant agencies and units in the city to monitor and direct the pressing issues in a timely manner.

According to Deputy Minister of Transport Le Anh Tuan, all domestic flights to and from Da Nang are to be suspended; meanwhile, more flights will be increased to relieve tourists from Da Nang on the night of July 28.

Inter-provincial and intra-provincial road passenger transport to and from the city have been halted for this period, except for official purposes and the supply of food and necessities.

Services at the Da Nang Railway Station will also be temporary closed. The Hanoi – Ho Chi Minh City train link will continue, but it will not receive or drop off passengers in Da Nang.

* The Hanoi’s Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control held an online meeting with leaders of districts and towns in the City.

The capital city has passed 103 days without new cases reported in the community. However, currently there are about 15,000 to 20,000 citizens traveling in Da Nang, bringing the potential risk of disease very high.

Chairman of the Hanoi Municipal People's Committee asked localities to take initiative in quickly preventing the spread of Covid-19, focusing on reviewing all people travelling from Da Nang to Hanoi since July 8, especially from localities affected by the epidemic.

People returning from Da Nang should proactively declare and actively monitor their health. Hospitals and health facilities must carry out the procedures for Covid-19 prevention and control in medical examination and treatment.
