PANO - On the first days of exercising social distancing measures according to the Prime Minister’s Directive No.16, the majority of the people in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam’s largest economic hub, followed the motto “Slow Living” and “Wherever You Are, Stay There.”

However, life still goes on, and supply chains of goods and necessities go on as well.

Therefore, to ensure that local people can live slowly, frontline forces and other laborers have had to intensify their work and do everything faster than usual.

The People’s Army Newspaper Online would like to introduce some close-up images of the fast-paced and slow-living lifestyle in Ho Chi Minh City over the past two days.
