At the working session, Chairman of the provincial People's Committee Nguyen Van Phong reported the Covid-19 prevention and control in the province and the plans for the epidemic prevention and control. Up to now, 100% of the villages in the province have established the epidemic prevention and control teams and the medical checking points.

Speaking at the meeting, Deputy Minister of Health Do Xuan Tuyen highly appreciated the province's disease prevention and control; the plans proposed by the province are reasonable. However, the situation of Covid-19 epidemic in the country is in a worrying period, therefore, Hung Yen province together with the whole country must strictly carry out the preventive measures under the direction of the Prime Minister "Anti-epidemic as anti-enemy" and always have a plan to prepare in advance.

By this time, there is one case infected of Covid-19 in Hung Yen province, so the Deputy Minister of Health suggested Hung Yen province should quickly implement the measures of zoning, isolation and stopping the epidemic in the area, where there is infecterd case under the guidance of the Ministry of Health, take the experience in Xuan Loi (Vinh Phuc province) to implement, but based on the actual situation in the locality to have a suitable and effective measure. The province needs to prepare a plan to cope with the emergencies, provide sufficient food and foodstuff for the people in isolated areas, and at the same time do well the propaganda to prevent people from being confused and worried. 

In response to the call of the Central Committee of Vietnam Fatherland Front, over the past time, the Central Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control and the Central Committee of Vietnam Fatherland Front have received the support and contributions of many collectives and individuals to join hands to prevent and combat the Covid-19 epidemic with both materials and cash. After reaching the agreement, the Ministry of Health decided to assign Hung Yen province a real-time PCR device for rapid testing of SARS-CoV-2.

Reportedly, the PCR device will shorten the time of SARS-CoV-2 testing to about 4 hours.

After handing the testing device to the leader of Hung Yen province, the Deputy Minister of Health suggested that Hung Yen province should immediately send a medical team working in the testing department of the province to the central hospitals to rapidly receive the transfer of testing technique for effective use of PCR device.

The PCR device will be immediately delivered to the Department of Health to use soon.
