A karaoke parlor in the southern Vietnamese province of Dong Nai has been caught operating and offering striptease services to attract customers despite a COVID-19 ban.

Police in Bien Hoa City, Dong Nai Province confirmed on Sunday they had booked the owner of Thu Hang karaoke shop for failing to comply with COVID-19 prevention and control regulations.

This violation is punishable by a fine worth VND10-20 million (US$432-865) for individuals and VND20-40 million ($865-1,731) for organizations.

The decision came after officers inspected the venue on Saturday night.

About 20 people including customers and employees were at the karaoke shop at the time of the inspection.

Two female employees were naked as they danced for their guests.

These employees said they had agreed to offer striptease services in order to attract more customers and receive more tips.

To avoid getting caught, the venue locked its door and turned off all lights in the front, while some men were also tasked with keeping watch.

Dong Nai is one of the neighbors of Ho Chi Minh City – a major coronavirus site with over 1,650 domestic cases now.

Although Dong Nai has only recorded three local infections since a new transmission wave hit the country on April 27, authorities had ordered the closure of such non-essential services as karaoke and discos from April 30.
