Hustle and bustle returns to Hanoi as usual on loosened social distancing orders

The Hanoitimes - Streets in Hanoi are bustling again when local residents leave home for doing exercise outdoor, dining and going for a walk.

As Hanoi eased the social distancing orders from April 23, usual pace of life is returning.  

 Streets in Hanoi are bustling as always, especially during rush hours.
 Fashion shops reopen after three weeks of strictly implementing the Prime Minister’s Directive No.16 on preventive measures to prevent and combat the Covid-19 pandemic.
 Hanoians enjoy the weekend, with a cup of coffee.
 Local residents exercise on the sidewalks of the Cau Giay park. Hung, a 35-year-old man, said he continues jogging after almost a month confined to his home.
“Before the pandemic, I often exercise. However, I had to give it up during the period of social distancing. Now, as the measures are progressively lifted, I could do exercises again, with anti-pandemic measures, of course, "Hung added.
 Everyone wears face masks to prevent the coronavirus pandemic.
 Starting April 23, lottery ticket vendors in the city return to work.
Hoa, while waiting for a bus on Cau Giay street, said that she often travels by bus as it is safe and cheap and there was no bus service during the social distancing time.
