Vietnam's capital Hanoi went under lockdown for just 15 days amid a surge in Coronavirus infections. The spread of the coronavirus is being reported from the southern Mekong Delta region, and the government quickly went under lockdown.

According to reports, the latest lockdown in Hanoi means that public gatherings of more than two people are banned. Also, only government offices, essential services and hospitals are allowed to remain open during this period.

Hanoi has asked all of its non-essential businesses to close since a surge in infections, and all outdoor activities have been suspended. The country reported 9,256 new cases on July 24, a huge jump from the previous day's number, which stood at 7307. Most of these cases come from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam's largest metropolis.

In this latest wave, Vietnam has been greatly affected by the virus. The country has recorded more than 83000 new cases, and 335 deaths.

While Hanoi has taken all precautions to contain the spread of the virus, the meeting of the National Assembly is going as per schedule. The meeting will continue for 12 days starting Tuesday. It was originally planned for 17 days. All the participating delegates have been vaccinated, and are being tested for the virus.

Anyone wishing to travel to Vietnam during this period should inquire with the embassy about the rules and restrictions in advance.
