At the meeting, Deputy Minister Le Quoc Hung speaks highly of An Giang police’s contribution to the local fight against COVID-19.

Deputy Minister Le Quoc Hung stressed, the COVID-19 pandemic situation has seen complicated developments throughout the country. For An Giang, it is even more complicated when the province has a high population density and a long borderline. As the flood season is coming, the pandemic prevention and control effort in the locality will face many difficulties.
