The event drew the participation of 15 special guests who are State/Government heads and nearly 150 health leaders.

PM Phuc expressed sympathies to the Governments and people around the world over the great losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and extended gratitude to all health workers and other frontliners who have worked hard to ensure public safety.

Having been deeply aware of the pandemic severity from the very early days, Vietnam has mobilized the involvement of authorities at all levels, national healthcare system, scientists and other forces in implementing drastic measures, including centralized quarantine, control of transmission sources, contact tracing, testing and treatment, Phuc said.

The Government’s policies and containment measures have been widely supported by the public, he added.

He called on countries to further enhance solidarity and mobilize resources to effectively curb the pandemic while working together to handle its far-reaching consequences.

Phuc expressed his strong belief that the international community will continue promoting the will and strength of each nation as well as the solidarity and cooperation to overcome this global crisis and build a better future for each country and people.
