Covid-19 in Vietnam updated on May 6, 2020
So far, Vietnam has confirmed totally 271 cases Covid-19 in Vietnam. Of these 232 have recovered and 39 are still under treatment. Therefore we can say the Covid-19 in Vietnam is under control.
Thanks to this good news, the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam has once again recommended increasing the number of domestic flights and remove distancing restrictions for passengers on aircraft.
It proposed that from May 5 the frequency on the Hanoi – Ho Chi Minh city sector should be increased to 52 flights either way daily from 36, and to Da Nang from either city to 20 from 12. People now can start traveling again across the country with very good airfare.
Vietnam top tourist destinations also reopen following social distancing ease.
Phu Quoc in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang, dubbed Vietnam’s Pearl Island, officially resumed tourist activities on Apr 26th, with restaurants, hotels and accommodation facilities only receiving domestic visitors and foreigners residing in Vietnam.
Mui Ne, often referred to as “a seaside paradise”, over the last few years has added to its vacation value by offering many exciting water sports like windsurfing, surfing, jet-skiing, and kayaking.
Authorities in Quang Binh, home to the world’s largest cave Son Doong, also announced to reopen the central province to tourists from Monday. Phong Nha and Tien Son caves, Mooc Stream and the Dark Cave – Chay river complex in Quang Binh started receiving tourists the same day.
Le Tri Thanh, Chairman of Quang Nam Province, home to the UNESCO heritage site Hoi An, on Friday approved resorts, hotels, motels and homestays to welcome visitors from localities categorized by the government as “low-risk”. The province is allowed to organize outdoor tours though the figure cannot exceed 10 people per trip.
Da Lat, a popular resort town in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong, with its year-round cool climate, and where no Covid-19 infections have been reported, has again welcomed tourists.
However, all bars, karaoke parlors, massage parlors and entertainment facilities are to remain closed under a directive issued by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
At the moment, we can say Vietnam is ready to operate normal tourism when the travel barriers are lifted. And we’re looking forward to welcoming tourists in the next months.
