Huong Pagoda Festival suspended to curb spread of COVID-19

Hanoi’s outlying My Duc district was ordered to suspend the annual Huong Pagoda Festival and stop receiving visitors in an attempt to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Chử Xuân Dũng has said.

Districts in the capital city hosting festivals are requested to suspend all activities until the 15th day of the first lunar month, Dũng said at a recent meeting of the city’s committee for COVID-19 prevention and control.

During February 10-13, the first days of the Tet (Lunar New Year) holidays, Hanoi logged two new COVID-19 cases, including a two-month-old child, informed Deputy Director of the municipal Department of Health Hoàng Đức Hạnh.

The city had reported a total 30 infections in the community since the start of new outbreaks on January 27.

Hạnh added that all employees at Noi Bai International Airport tested negative with the SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19.

Hanoi's localities are asked to bolster inspections and impose fines on those who fail to wear face masks in public places. They must also devise scenarios and plans as workers will return to work after the Tet holidays end. 

The Huong Pagoda Festival, the longest of its kind in Vietnam, begins on the sixth day of the lunar new year and lasts for three months.
