On September 17, the first mobile clinic in Binh Duong province was put into operation in Tuan Uyen commune. The clinic, equipped with oxygen cylinders, SpO2 meters, antigen test kits, and ambulance vehicles, is prepared to deliver first aid to people living and working in the area. Upon receiving a call for help, the clinic’s medical staff immediately respond, perform a quick test and diagnosis, and give instructions for self-isolation or place the individual in quarantine, if necessary. This ensures early detection and prompt treatment of infections. The mobile clinic model will eventually be replicated for all business enterprises in Binh Duong province.
In Can Tho city, the municipal People’s Committee adopted a plan to help businesses and service providers get ready to resume their activities safely after September 18. The Hau Giang Pharmaceutical Company, one of the companies that maintained their production during the pandemic, adopted the “3 on the spot” strategy, which will remain in effect until a new plan is needed.
Le Thi Cam Hong of the Hau Giang Pharmaceutical Joint Stock Company said, 'Workers here will continue working under the “3 on the spot” plan until the end of September. Each official or worker must strictly abide by the 5K health rules, practice social distancing under Directive 16, and periodically take a quick test.'
Luong Hoang Hung, Vice Chairman of the Union of Vietnam Business Science, said, 'E-commerce businesses have transformed their warehouses and moved to non-concentrated production to prevent disruption. Despite the pandemic they have maintained their delivery and goods supply and their revenues are at 80% of pre-pandemic levels. This shows that they have been flexible in shifting from concentrated to non-concentrated production.'
Restoring production while at the same time protecting workers’ health is not an easy task, but by adopting flexible measures and reorganizing their production, businesses have been able to minimize the damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and preserve the jobs of their employees.
