Pedestrian streets around Hoàn Kiếm Lake close to prevent Covid-19

The People's Committee of Hoàn Kiếm District in Hà Nội has announced the capital city’s popular ‘walking streets’ will temporarily close from Friday.

The move is made in line with the Hanoi authorities’ regulations on Covid-19 prevention and control, according to the committee’s vice chairman Dinh Hong Phong.

Many people walk around Hoan Kiem Lake after the pedestrian streets around the lake reopened on May 15 after closing to prevent Covid-19.

The pedestrian streets include those around Hoan Kiem Lake, its neighbouring streets in the Old Quarter, such as Hang Dao, Hang Giay and Dong Xuan Night Market.

These streets often attract a large number of people which poses high risks for Covid-19 spreading without appropriate preventive measures, according to Phong.

The ‘walking street’ around Hoan Kiem Lake, for example, draws an average of around 3,000-5,000 visitors during the day and 15,000-20,000 at night.

This is the second time the district decided to close these pedestrian streets since the Covid-19 pandemic started to hit the country in early 2020.
