One thing must be admitted, the net shop business in Hanoi has never been so gloomy. Under the effects of the COVID-19 epidemic, internet cafes are considered to be a place with a significantly higher risk of infection because this is a place where there are quite a lot of people, potentially posing a great risk of disease spread. Therefore, from the end of April 2021, a series of internet shops, from ‘grass net’ to computer rooms in the capital, are in the ‘closed and bolted’ scene.
After nearly a year, from 0:00 on April 8, 2022, the Hanoi People’s Committee has officially allowed electronic game and Internet stores in the capital to reopen.
As noted by the reporter, a number of large net room chains in Hanoi welcomed a large number of guests on the first day of reopening, if not literally ‘jubilant’.
