Owners of two online game centers in Hanoi have been fined a combined VND30 million (US$1,296) for going against authorities’ order to suspend operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each of the two venues was handed a fine worth VND15 million ($648) on Tuesday.

Police inspected an online game center at 72 Tran Dai Nghia Street in Dong Tam Ward, Hai Ba Trung District on Monday evening and discovered one employee and 12 guests at the place.

Another team of officers examined another game center at 124 Vinh Tuy Street in Hai Ba Trung District on the same night, uncovering one employee and four customers.

Authorities in Hanoi have decided to shutter all karaoke parlors, bars, discos and game centers from April 30 and movie theaters, massage parlors, spa services, and gym centers from May 5 to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The capital has recorded 155 local COVID-19 transmissions since Vietnam was hit by the fourth wave of infections on April 27.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the country has documented 3,593 COVID-19 cases, with 2,618 recoveries and 35 deaths, according to the Ministry of Health.
