VTV.vn - Da Nang students will be back to school from September 14, following the latest eased social distancing measures announced by the city authorities after the local COVID-19 outbreak was put under control.

Known as the origin of the second wave of COVID-19 infections in Vietnam in late July, the central coastal tourist destination has now pushed back the epidemic, and the local authorities to gradually ease some of the strict epidemic prevention and control measures.

Accordingly, the new measures have been implemented across the city from 0:00 on September 11, allowing students from secondary and junior high schools, as well as further education centres, to return to school from September 14, while preschools, primary schools, foreign language training facilities, overseas study counselling centres and other extra classes may resume operation from September 21.

Local restaurants, shops and catering service establishments are allowed to resume their operation, but must make a commitment to implementing epidemic prevention and control measures according to regulations.

Da Nang residents are suggested to restrict leaving home if not necessary and must wear face masks at public places, on public vehicles, at offices, schools and hospitals and in business and service establishments.

The city still bans gatherings of over 30 people in public places and outside offices, schools and hospitals.

Binh Dinh Province also removed some strict social distancing measures to allow the resumption of non-essential service establishments such as bars, discos, karaoke parlours, movie theatres and wedding restaurants from 0:00 today.

The province is maintaining six local medical checkpoints at Binh De Pass, Bong Son Station (Hoai Nhon Town), Quy Nhon Bus Station, Quy Nhon Port (Quy Nhon City), Phu Cat Airport (Phu Cat District) and Dieu Tri Station (Tuy Phuoc District), as well as continuing the implementing centralised medical isolation for those arriving/returning from epidemic-hit areas or from Da Nang, while those arriving/returning from Quang Nam Province are not subjected to concentrated quarantine.

On September 10, doctors from the Hospital for Tropical Diseases supported a successful delivery for a pregnant woman infected with COVID-19 undergoing treatment at the Hanoi-based hospital. The 30 year old woman, known as Patient no. 411, returned from Russia and was quarantined immediately after entering the Nam Dinh Province General Hospital on July 17.

Due to a history of preterm birth, the patient was transferred to the Hanoi’s hospital for treatment to ensure the safety of both the mother and child. Under the hospital doctors’ support, she gave birth to the baby boy at 36 weeks, weighing 3.8 kg. Because the mother is under quarantine, the hospital uses an incubator to monitor the baby’s readings and give him formula milk. The midwife team will be kept on medical quarantine for the next 14 days.

On the same day, Phu Yen Province welcomed 339 Vietnamese citizens repatriated from Russia to a local quarantine camp in Phu Dong Ward, Tuy Hoa City, for their 14 days of concentrated isolation in accordance with regulations. Earlier on September 1, Phu Yen also received 122 citizens from Da Nang to practice concentrated isolation in the province. Up until now, all of these citizens are healthy and have not recorded any abnormal symptoms.

Also on September 10, Thai Ambassador to Vietnam Tanee Sangrat paid his second visit to the headquarters of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee in Hanoi to present 1,000 boxes of canned fish and 25,000 face masks, worth VND1 billion, to support Vietnam’s efforts in fighting against COVID-19.

Congratulating Vietnam on its certain successes in the prevention and control of the epidemic, the diplomat said that the Thai businesses in Vietnam have continued to join hands to support the host country as the epidemic returned for the second time.

Chairman of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee Tran Thanh Man expressed his sincere thanks to the ambassador and Thai businesses, emphasising that their support will facilitate the Party and State of Vietnam in repelling the epidemic. He also expressed his belief that with experience from both sides, Vietnam and Thailand would continue to achieve better results in the disease prevention and control, thus creating favourable conditions for businesses to be assured in doing business in each country.
