Hanoi and HCM City today, March 30, began denying entry to vehicles with over nine seats until April 15 to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Other routes can only be used to make one trip per day.

Each vehicle is not allowed to carry more than 20 people or have more than 50 percent of its seats in use.

In addition, all localities were asked to minimise public transport. Vehicles used for healthcare purposes or goods transport are not affected.

Vietnam Railways and other railway companies were required to suspend rail transport. The Hanoi-HCM City route can be used for two trips per day.

Local maritime and waterway administrations should minimise trips from the mainland to islands and closely monitor sailors and passengers.
