The government’s efforts to combat the epidemic have been hampered by the audacity of several internet stores that continue to operate in defiance of temporary closures. This blatant disregard for public health measures raises concerns about the effectiveness of the overall response.
Irresponsible Operations Detected by Ba Dinh District Police
Following the directive from the Hanoi People’s Committee to suspend the operation of various establishments to prevent the spread of Covid-19, the Ba Dinh District Police intensified their inspections. During these efforts, they discovered two video game service companies that were deliberately defying the closure order.
In the early hours of May 8, 2021, the Ba Dinh District Police Security Team conducted an unexpected inspection of a video game public service business located at 6 Vinh Phuc Alley, Vinh Phuc District. Despite the closure order, the store was found to be open with two employees and thirty customers inside, actively using the facility.
At 8:50 pm on May 18, 2021, the Ba Dinh District Police inspected a video game public service business situated at Lane 71 Tan Ap, Phuc Xa District. During the inspection, the facility was found to have one employee and twenty-four individuals utilizing its services. To evade detection, the establishment even resorted to using locked rooms, further exposing the level of deceit.
Non-compliance Leads to Stringent Measures
Promptly responding to these flagrant violations, the Ba Dinh District Police prepared a case to propose imposing an administrative fine of VND 15 million on each establishment. The fine is in accordance with the provisions of point c, paragraph 3, article 12 of Decree 117/2020/ND-CP, issued by the Government on September 28, 2020. This decree outlines sanctions for administrative violations in the medical field, specifically for non-compliance with decisions related to applying security measures and restricting commercial activities in public places.
These incidents of contempt for the state’s efforts to combat the epidemic and disregard for public health in favor of business profits have sparked widespread outrage among readers.
