The Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism has recommended postponing or cancelling traditional festivals which are yet to start, and for those which already began, their scale, duration and activities should be reduced, in the face of the threat of coronavirus.

The proposal was made in Dispatch 393/CD-BVHTTDL sent to Chairpersons of People’s Committees of provinces and centrally-run cities on the prevention of the spread of the new coronavirus (nCoV) which causes acute respiratory disease.

Any exception should be submitted to the Prime Minister.
