No firework displays in Ha Noi on Lunar New Year's Eve

The decision was made on this morning.

Previously, on January 18, the Ministry of Health asked localities not to organize firework display during the Tet holiday to ensure the effectiveness of COVID-19 pandemic prevention and control. Localities are entitled to suspend unnecessary large gatherings, outdoor activities and festivals and maintain production in a safe manner.

According to the MoH, new community infection cases of COVID-19 are still recorded in many localities, especially those with a high population density and frequency of trade and traveling. In addition, the Omicron variant is spreading rapidly with complicated and unpredictable developments in many countries around the world and in the region.

Under a document sent to the Government Office,  the ministry said if firework display is conducted, it is necessary to observe the MoH's 5K message –  khau trang (face masks), khu khuan (disinfection), khoang cach (distancing), khong tu tap (no gatherings), and khai bao y te (health declarations); and to ensure no crowds at the venues.

Earlier, Ho Chi Minh City also canceled firework display on the Lunar New Year's Eve, making the second year in a row that the metropolis doesn't organize Tet fireworks displays due to Covid-19 last year.

Earlier, on January 3, the Ha Noi authorities announced firework show on the New Year's Eve at a single avenue without spectators at the Coconut Island, Thong Nhat Park, Hai Ba Trung District./.
