HCM City - The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee on July 21 decided to set up concentrated quarantine facilities in its districts and Thu Duc city for COVID-19 patients who show no symptoms, to ease the pressure on hospitals amid the complicated developments of COVID-19 pandemic.

Those facilities will receive patients without clinical symptoms and underlying diseases and monitor their health so as to promptly discover abnormal symptoms that are likely to turn serious.

In case the condition of any patients worsens, the facilities must promptly put them on oxygen ventilators, and transfer them to hospitals for timely treatment.

Each facility must be equipped with all necessary equipment and supplies to give emergency treatment to patients pending transfer to hospitals.
