This will last “until the further notice” after the first two-week lockdown period ended on August 11.

Under the request by Chairman of the city People’s Committee Huynh Duc Tho, local people need to stay at home and go out only for essential goods and emergency, except those working in essential sectors.

To make the lockdown effectively, the city’s leader demanded three main issues be addressed namely ensuring enough goods and medical equipment, conducting more testing and tightening quarantine, and improving treatment for Covid-19 patients.

Regarding food for local during the lockdown, Director of Danang’s Department of Industry and Trade Nguyen Ha Bac said going to the market will be strictly controlled. One person of each household is allowed to go to the market every three days to avoid crowds. Accordingly, each family will get five single-use permits for groceries shopping for 15 days.

People are asked to wear face masks and disinfect hands before entering the market. Physical distancing of at least two meters is also required inside the market.

Since the detection of the first locally-infected coronavirus infection in Danang on July 25, this city has recorded 273 cases, including 12 deaths.

More than 10,000 people who made contact with the Covid-19 patients have been in quarantine in hospitals and concentrated centers. Meanwhile, more than 51,000 people have been tested for SARS-CoV-2 so far.

Since then, some big hospitals in the city, many residential areas, district clinics, and quarantine facilities are on the full lockdown.
