The municipal administration on July 22 issued a document on implementing the Prime Minister’s conclusion on COVID-19 prevention and control.

Accordingly, it demanded district-level localities and authorized forces to push ahead with the implementation of the issued anti-COVID-19 strategy to resolutely prevent the second wave of infections in Ha Noi.

It assigned the Health Department to keep a close watch on the pandemic situation so as to stay ready to respond when necessary while increasing measures to prevent diphtheria, dengue fever and other disease outbreaks.

Meanwhile, the Tourism Department was requested to work with the Health Department and district-level authorities to arrange more accommodation facilities for quarantining foreign experts, investors and skilled workers.
