VTV.vn - The Ministry of Health has issued a directive urging strengthened anti-COVID-19 measures and enhanced medical work as the Lunar New Year approaches.

The ministry strongly recommended the implementation of anti-epidemic measures during the peak campaign from now to the 2021 Lunar New Year, focusing especially on migration control.

It asked health departments across the nation to strengthen the inspection and supervision of immigration and medical quarantine procedures for early detection and timely handling of infected cases (if any) so as to not let the epidemic spread into the community, while continuing to direct subordinate units to thoroughly grasp and strictly implement the Prime Minister's requirements on strengthening the implementation of COVID-19 prevention and control.

Health care units were urged to develop and implement specific epidemic prevention and control plans and scenarios, focusing on sample taking and testing when outbreaks occur, while continuing to expand testing for suspected cases and organising drills and training for medical staff.

Medical facilities were also asked to closely coordinate with management units of isolation camps to resolutely not let the epidemic spread in the quarantine facilities and from there to the community.
