At the donation meeting, Deputy Minister of Health Do Xuan Tuyen, said that Vietnam is in the fourth wave of COVID-19 pandemic with serious developments in cities and provinces.
Since April 27, nearly 6,000 infection cases were reported in 39 cities and provinces. This time, the pandemic struck not only in the community but also in factories and industrial parks.
In response to the complicated situation, the Ministry of Health has made adjustments in the prevention and fight, especially in quarantining, tracing, testing, and treatment. Accordingly, in addition to real time RT-PCR testing, the health sector also uses antigen rapid test.
Tuyen highlighted the support from the businesses, hoping that the business community will contribute more to the country’s COVID-19 fight and protecting and strengthening people’s health.
