At an online meeting on Monday on COVID-19 response, Mr. Chinh said despite great effort, the pandemic situation in the two provinces is unstable and is expected to get worse.
The Prime Minister, who is Head of the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control, said all localities nationwide must closely follow the government’s instructions and the Health Ministry’s regulations, reiterating the motto: “Each commune, ward and town is a ‘fortress’, each citizen is a ‘soldier’ on the anti-pandemic front”.
He also stressed the need to prevent corruption, negative signs, and vested interests in the purchase of medical equipment, medicine and medical supplies serving the pandemic fight.
