According to Major General Nguyen Khac Thuy, although Hanoi has just confirmed the first COVID-19 patient, local people should not fear for the disease.
“As soon as Vietnam announced the epidemic, we have prepared forces and means to respond to all situations”, Major General Thuy said.
He said that the COVID-19 epidemic has become more complicated as it has spread nearly 100 countries.
Therefore, the active prevention of the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic in the community is the top priority at the moment, and people’s sense of self-prevention of COVD-19 infection plays a very important role.
In order to protect themselves and others from COVID-19 infection, he urged people to maintain good personal hygiene, strictly follow the epidemic prevention regulations of the Ministry of Health as well as the recommendations of the Department of Health under the MPS.
Currently, the Steering Committee on Epidemic Prevention and Control of the MPS continues to direct the Department of Health to urgently distribute medical supply to local police units, particularly facemasks, antibacterial liquid, disinfectant water, hand sanitizer, disinfectant chemicals Cloramin-B.
The MPS and the Steering Committee on Epidemic Prevention and Control of the MPS also actively produced antibacterial facemasks meeting the standards of the Ministry of Health for police officers and soldiers, particularly those working in high-risk environments.By An Nhien
