At Nguyen Thai Hoc street after a rain storm “I have lived in Hoi An for years, so I know the city in great detail. In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic, I still walk the streets every morning to capture all moments of local daily life,” said photographer Do Anh Vu. To prevent the spread of the COVID-19, locals always wear face-masks in public places, regularly check their body temperatures, keep personal hygiene and wash their hands with soap.
