Windows of a residential apartment in Hanoi are covered with the Vietnamese national flag in support of the fight against COVID-19.

The photo was snapped by Indian photographer Prabu Mohan, who is currently living in Hanoi.

Mohan says that he was able to capture the photo at a residential apartment close to his home in the capital.

The residents hang their Vietnamese national flags in support of those who are fighting on the front line against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), says Mohan.
