Hanoi’s outskirt village burst with joy after 28-day lockdown
The Hanoitimes - The villagers can now return to normal livelihood.
Around 11,000 residents in Hanoi’s outlying village of Ha Loi burst with joy as they could come back to normal life since May 6 after a 28-day lockdown to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
The village had been isolated since April 7 after a local man tested positive for the virus. Ten checkpoints were set up in the village to enforce the lockdown.
Another 13 people who had close contact with this man were later confirmed positive for the Covid -19. However, since April 15, no cases of infection have been reported in the area.
Before the lockdown was lifted, all people in Ha Loi village were tested for Covid -19 and no one became positive with the virus.
