Hanoi localities urged to strictly supervise people under medical quarantine

The Hanoitimes - Hanoi districts’ authorities are required to keep raising people's awareness of the pandemic.

Hanoi's districts need to strictly supervise people under quarantine at home as an indispensable measure to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, Kinh Te & Do Thi quoted Ngo Thi Thanh Hang, member of the Party Central Committee and Permanent Deputy Secretary of the municipal Party's Committee, as saying.

At a recent meeting with Phu Xuyen and Thanh Tri districts’ authorities, Hang recognized that the two districts have been seriously and actively implementing guidelines on Covid-19 epidemic prevention and control.

Emphasizing that this work should be followed on, Hang requested the districts’ authorities to remain calm and ensure safety for people.

Besides, the districts’ authorities were asked to keep raising people's awareness of the pandemic, so that people could take measures to keep themselves safe from the coronavirus.
 
"Districts need to suspend or postpone all mass gatherings," Hang said.

She stressed that the districts strive for the double goal, Covid-19 pandemic prevention and socio-economic development, to ensure social security.

The districts also need to pay attention to supporting poor families and lonely elderly people to cope with the epidemic, ensuring that in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic "no one is left behind".

As of March 26, Hanoi has 52 active coronavirus-infected cases, the largest number in Vietnam. The majority are Vietnamese nationals returning from Europe and the US, in addition to foreigners from epidemic-hit regions.
