Scanners equipped for city movement

Last week, Ho Chi Minh City lifted some restrictions on food and beverage services, providers of post and telecommunications, and suppliers of office computer accessories and school learning tools.

To control the pandemic situation effectively, residents are provided with a QR code for inner-city transport. City police teams were equipped with QR code scanners at 100 key checkpoints to limit close and direct contact and to help transportation move more easily.

The scanners work by connecting with the electronic VNEID medical declaration app built and released by the public security for the management of social order following the regulations of the Ministry of Public Security. The citizen’s QR code can be used interchangeably between management software in pandemic areas and commonly used applications such as Ncovi, Bluezone, and VHD.

VNEID has the ability to connect to the national population database to ensure accuracy of information, serving the tracking of various case levels in the prevention and control of the pandemic. At the same time, it is also possible to expand deployment in other locations when required, such as supermarkets, trade centres, drug stores, and more.

The application can be installed for free on both Android and iOS.
