Mr Hai was concerned that many people were subjective and did not strictly follow regulations on the prevention and control of Covid-19 on streets and crowded places after getting vaccinated.
Recently, many people have flocked to Nguyen Hue Pedestrian Street on weekends without wearing face masks and keeping their distance. Many restaurants also did not strictly comply with the regulations.
Ho Chi Minh City’s deputy director of health, Nguyen Van Vinh Chau, informed that in the past two weeks, the number of new cases of coronavirus has tended to increase again. Most of the new infections have been discovered in export processing zones and industrial parks where workers have not been fully immunized.
The aforementioned information was released yesterday at a press conference of the HCMC Steering Committee for the Prevention and Control of the Covid-19 Pandemic.
