Zoning is based on risk factors of the pandemic, geographical characteristics, population, daily life, and production. Zone 1 is the central urban area. Zone 2 covers the entire administrative boundaries of five districts: Long Bien, Gia Lam, Dong Anh, Soc Son, and Me Linh. Zone 3 is the agricultural production area and industrial zones and clusters with typical agricultural activities and population.
Zoning will also form layers to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and concentrate human and material resources for pandemic fight.
Hanoi is now in a social distancing period under the Prime Minister’s Directive 16 which has been extended from July 24 amid complicated clusters and unlinked COVID-19 cases in the community.
