Students from the first to sixth grades in the 18 suburban districts and towns of Hanoi will return to online learning from Monday as part of local efforts to curb COVID-19 transmission.

The Hanoi People’s Committee made the decision on Sunday following the proposal of the municipal Department of Education and Training.

The move was prompted by a surge in the number of new infections in the community, including in educational establishments, given that students of the aforementioned grades are yet to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

The municipal People’s Committee also assigned the district-level administrations to base their decision on the COVID-19 situation in their localities, proposals by local educational establishments, and opinions from students’ parents to flexibly switch between in-person and online learning so as to ensure safety for both students and teachers.

Earlier, students from the first to sixth grades in the 18 suburban districts and towns of Hanoi resumed in-person learning on February 10. 

Meanwhile, schools remain shut for those in urban districts.

As of Saturday, 283 communes, wards, and towns in Hanoi had been classified as areas at low risk of COVID-19 transmission; 222 at medium risk; and 74 at high risk.

The city of eight million people has documented over 259,300 infections, with the daily record soaring to over 11,500 patients from some 6,800 cases in the past seven days, since the fourth virus wave broke out in Vietnam on April 27, 2021.

More than six million adults in the Vietnamese capital have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose while over 6.2 million of them have been jabbed twice, according to the national COVID-19 vaccination portal.
