An increase of warning level for Covid-19
A meeting on Covid-19 prevention and control has just been held at the headquarters of the Government. It was chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam - Head of the National Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control.
In the complex context of Covid-19 in Da Nang and Quang Nam, the meeting agreed to strengthen the treatment in these places, asking the healthcare staffs and local authorities not to be subjective and not to loosen management and control when the number of Covid-19 confirmed cases decreases.
According to the National Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control, we are determined to localize the epidemic in Da Nang and Quang Nam. Besides the local epidemic prevention and control, it is necessary to tighten the management, inspection and reception of foreigners into Vietnam for work.
It is the most important that people are required to limit going out, keep distance, wear face masks, wash hands… in order to keep themselves safe, protect their family and relatives from the epidemic, show their responsibility for the community and nation.
Anyone who doesn’t obey the requirements will be fined. The experts also identified the spirit of living with the epidemic safely, changing the habits to promptly respond to other epidemics.
In terms of SARS-CoV-2 testing, to save the bio-products, chemicals, consumable materials and time for testing, the Ministry of Health has issued temporary instructions for adding up samples that need testing.
At present, there are 70 units licensed to test SARS-CoV-2 by Realtime RT-PCR nationwide, including 34 units in North, 6 in Central, 2 in Highlands, 28 in South.
