VTV.vn - The Hoa Binh provincial Health Department held a ceremony on August 27 to send off 20 medical workers to join the fight against COVID-19 in Binh Duong province.

As planned, once in Binh Duong, the team will support the treatment of COVID-19 patients at the 3,000-bed field hospital in Thu Dau Mot city.

This the third time Hoa Binh has sent doctors and medical workers to assist pandemic prevention and control in the southern provinces.

* The Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee (HCYUCC) has promulgated a plan on establishing youth volunteer teams to support COVID-19 pandemic response in southern cities and provinces.

Accordingly, 5,000 youth union members and youngsters will join volunteer teams to join the pandemic fight in pandemic-hit localities in the southern region.

The plan targets lecturers and students from 44 cities and provinces, particularly those from universities and colleges of medicine, preventive healthcare, traditional medicine, and pharmacy.

Volunteers can register to join the plan via http://chongdich.doanthanhnien.vn no later than August 31, and local youth unions will announce their lists of qualified eligible participants before September 2. The lists will be finalised and made public by the HCYUCC by September 4.

A total of 403 mobile medical stations have been established in the country's largest COVID-19 hotspot of Ho Chi Minh City as of August 25, following the direction of the Ministry of Health in order to give health care services to COVID-19 patients at home amid the overload of the healthcare system due to the complicated developments of COVID-19.

Medical workers at the station are being tasked with providing health care services and consultation to COVID-19 patients as well as vaccination services for local residents.

They have also conducted COVID-19 testing, particularly in red zones (extremely high-risk areas) and orange zones (high-risk areas) in order to detect infections in the communities.
