Launched by the municipal Department of Information and Communications together with the Department of Health, the map can be found at https://covidmaps.hanoi.gov.vn.
People can search for and be updated on COVID-19-related issues in Hanoi on their smartphone or computer connected to the internet.
The system also analyses density and provides statistics and information on testing venues, concentrated quarantine facilities, sealed off areas, and medical establishments, among others.
Director of the Hanoi Information and Communications Department Nguyen Thanh Liem said the data is provided by the city’s Centre for Disease Control and updated regularly.
The map is hoped to be an effective tool for local people and authorities in the fight against the pandemic, he added.
New functions will be added in the time to come, including reports confirming COVID-19 infections within sites pinpointed on the map, localities collecting samples, and suitable travel routes to avoid high-risk areas.
