The field hospital is as part of the emergency plans to cope with the COVID-19 epidemic.
All of the hospital medical staff and patients have been isolated.
The current number of people at the hospital is approximately 3,500, including 800 patients who cannot be discharged or transferred to lower levels and 552 patients with very serious renal failure that need dialyses.
He also said that, the hospital is still operational. The staff is still working without fears as all of them are confirmed negative for COVID-19.
However the hospital currently has 1.300 seriously ill patients. Therefore, all medical workers have to take intensive care of patients, while protecting themselves from being infected with the virus.
At the moment, the hospital provide all essential and personal items for nearly 3,500 people. The hospital has asked the Ministry of Health and the Hanoi Municipal People’s Committee along with other departments for support.
Another difficulty is the sufficient supply of nutrition for the quarantined patients and staff inside the hospital. The hospital’s canteen has been locked down and all staff working there are isolated.
So, the hospital has contracted a company specializing in supplying portions for air carriers to provide meals for all of the staff and people at the hospital.By An Nhien
