Hanoi’s sparkling moments on social distancing days

The Hanoitimes - After two weeks in social distancing, citizens in Hanoi take another stay-at-home week to prevent the propagation of the pandemic.

Hanoi becomes quiet and clean during the social distancing days as local residents minimize outdoor activities and all non-essential services are ceased in accordance with the government’s order to fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

 The streets of the capital city have never been so serene, clean and quiet.
