Around two million students in Hanoi are expected to resume school on September 1.

The 2021-22 year is expected to finish before May 31 next year.

While the city People's Committee has yet to make an official announcement, it is expected that the students will continue to study online amid the ongoing Covid-19 social distancing mandate, which is expected to last until August 23.

More than 30 provinces and cities have announced dates for the new year.

Ho Chi Minh City planned to reopen schools in mid-September and have students study online in the first weeks. The city People's Committee is expected to make a final decision on the dates this week.

Hanoi has had 2,484 Covid cases since the fourth wave hit Vietnam in late April.
