Hanoi evacuates residents from Covid-19 cluster

Hanoi will start moving 1,200 residents from its biggest Covid-19 cluster to an isolated facility in the outskirts from Wednesday evening, officials said.

The city will move residents in alleys 328 and 330 of Nguyen Trai Road in Thanh Xuan District to FPT University, 33 kilometers to the west.

As the two alleys have old buildings with high population density, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh had ordered the evacuation Tuesday.
