On 15 September 2021, the leadership of Ho Chi Minh City announced that they will be extending the social distancing in Ho Chi Minh City until 30 September 2021. The social distancing will continue to be under the conditions set forth in the Prime Minister’s Directive No. 16 and other specific restrictions already in place. The goal is to have 80% of the city vaccinated by that time, though it is difficult to tell whether that will be possible given current vaccine availability. This extension will hopefully allow the number of community transmissions to fall until the city reaches herd immunity.
