VTV.vn - More than 42,443 tonnes of rice from national reserves have been delivered to people affected by COVID-19 in 24 cities and provinces across the country, according to the General Department of State Reserves.

Most of the recipients were those who were living in lockdown or quarantine areas or were laid off due to production suspension.

The fourth outbreak of COVID-19 that started in late April has seriously affected the lives and employment of millions of people and workers across the country.

According to the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, more than 8.6 million people in 24 cities and provinces are at risk of starvation due to COVID-19.

The ministry therefore submitted a proposal to the Prime Minister in August to allocate approximately 130,000 tonnes of rice from national reserves to these people within a month

Ho Chi Minh City, the country’s largest coronavirus hotspot, should be provided with 71,100 tonnes of rice to support 1.58 million households in need of aid relief.
