The city has conducted large-scale testing on 4 million people to filter F0 cases and reduce community cases. After the mass testing, the city has narrowed down testing areas.

After September 21, “Only red zones with high risks and positive cases will have to apply restrictions. It’s better to have no red zones. If we have red zones, we have to try to narrow things down,” Vice chairman Duong Duc Tuan said. The city will allow construction sites to resume operation in the conditions of following safety measures. This means the operatives of inspections as well as audit on-site will be able to back to normal soon.
