VOV.VN - The central city of Da Nang, the epicentre of the country’s coronavirus outbreak, has removed all checkpoints set up at its gateways after the COVID-19 outbreak was put under control.
The decision came into effect as of 12.00hrs September 14, according to an urgent telegram released by the Da Nang Municipal Department of Public Security.
Life has returned to normal in Da Nang following the containment of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. No new cases of community transmission have been detected in the city over the past days.
The removal of the checkpoints aims to facilitate economic development and human movement in Da Nang, as well as between Da Nang and other neighbouring localities.
Despite the disease being under control, the Da Nang administration has asked local police units to work closely with relevant forces to strictly manage all foreigners and Vietnamese citizens residing in the locality, promptly discover and quarantine those coming from epidemic hit areas.
The Da Nang administration had decided to establish eight checkpoints at gateways to the city since July 31 when the virus resurged in the locality. The checkpoints were designed to control, detect and prevent any people and vehicles entering or coming out of the city.
