VGP – Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam has asked ministries, sectors and localities to accelerate the periodic self-assessment of their anti-COVID-19 measures as well as update of information on the map of safe living with the pandemic, starting from medical facilities, schools and accommodation establishments to means of traffic, shopping centers and factories.

This is a very basic solution to help directly fight Covid-19 and to spread the anti-pandemic spirit to the whole society, Dam stressed during the Government’s conference with localities in Ha Noi on December 29.

The update of information on the anti-epidemic map also contributes to building and perfecting the database system for each industry such as education, health, transport and trade, thus serving state management and digital transformation in the future, Deputy PM Dam stated.

Highlighting the high risk of infection from imported cases, he stressed the need to strengthen border control and to develop a platform for the people to provide information and report on those with signs of unpermitted entry or travel. 

Deputy PM Dam requested the Party committees and authorities at all levels to call on people to tell their relatives overseas not to illegally enter the country.  

Recalling the case of Patient No. 1,342 in Ho Chi Minh City, he urged localities to conduct strict medical surveillance over those who have completed mandatory quarantine at concentrated sites.

“Immediately after recording the case returning from Myanmar (Patient No. 1,440), we have promptly mobilized the involvement of forces and identified all those who accompanied Patient No. 1,440. Three of them have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, two negative, and one waiting for testing results. Only with such readiness and synchronism of the entire system can the people celebrate a safe and happy Lunar New Year,” the Deputy PM said.
