Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi has become deserted amid the country’s new Covid-19 outbreak.

The scene is totally different from the recent Renunciation Day (April 30) and May Day holiday when the airport experienced a passenger surge.

However, after the holiday, Vietnam has been facing the Covid-19 spread, causing people to cancel their trips by air.

Many localities have imposed social distancing regulations. Meanwhile people in Hanoi are advised to stay indoors as much as possible for virus prevention.

At 10 am on Sunday, Bamboo Airways counters were mostly deserted. Passengers were reminded of fulfilling health declarations and wearing masks.

Due to the small number of passengers, only three security screening gates were in operation.
