Da Nang streets deserted as social distancing reapplied
Many areas in Danang City have become deserted as people stay indoors due to fears of a new Covid-19 outbreak.
Danang City seemed largely deserted, with closed doors and much fewer travellers. Popular areas, especially the along the coast or river banks which are favoured by both locals and tourists were empty as restaurants and eateries were asked to close or offer take-away service only.
A bread shop owner in Dong Da Street said she tried to make some more loaves in the early morning to close the shop at 10 am as regulated. According to the owner, the whole family depended on the shop so they were badly affected but health and safety are still their first priority.
