Authorities in Da Nang have discouraged people from going outside and limited gatherings in public places to five after the central Vietnamese city logged ten more local cases of COVID-19 on Thursday.

In order to curb infections, the municipal authorities ordered all districts to continue suspending dine-in services, which has been mandated since May 3.

People are requested to refrain from going outside unless necessary and gathering in groups of more than five in public places, except for workplaces, schools, and hospitals.

Households should not host family activities that attract large attendance due to the high risk of infection among relatives.

Local authorities also reminded people to seriously practice the mandate of using ‘market admission tickets’ and other disease control measures.

The Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control of Da Nang confirmed ten new cases of local transmission on Thursday, raising the city’s community infections to 112.

Of the total, two cases were related to Phu An Hotel, 22 were linked to the New Phuong Dong bar, 44 were traced back to the Amida plastic surgery clinic, and 44 others involved Truong Minh Company.

Ten of the 112 patients have tested negative for the virus once during their treatment at the Da Nang Hospital for Lung Diseases.
