The request was made by the Minister at an online meeting with the Departments of Health of Quang Ninh and Hai Duong provinces on Covid-19 epidemic prevention, on the evening of January 28.

`This needs to be done immediately and soon, because the possibility of spread from these two outbreaks is very high because the new strain of nCoV spreads very quickly, possibly higher than the ability to spread faster than 70% as calculated by the world.`

According to the Minister, when conducting an epidemiological investigation, when detecting epidemiological traces, the Tracing Team must make all public.

Minister of Health Nguyen Thanh Long chaired the meeting on the evening of January 28.

Assessing that this outbreak is at risk of becoming complicated and the number of infections may increase in the coming days, Minister Long directed the establishment of 3 field hospitals in Hai Duong to carry out on-site treatment.

The Central Tropical Diseases Hospital is responsible for building the first field hospital at Chi Linh Medical Center.

Bach Mai Hospital is responsible for establishing a second field hospital at Hai Duong University of Medical Technology.

The third field hospital will be set up at Hai Duong Provincial Sports Stadium.

Regarding the treatment force, the Minister mobilized Da Nang’s medical team with experience in handling similar situations in July-August 2020 to help Hai Duong treat Covid-19 patients.

`The Ministry of Health puts all its efforts to help Hai Duong soon localize and extinguish the epidemic in the area. The Central Government will provide maximum support,` the Minister emphasized.

Currently, the entire Chi Linh city has been blockaded.

Deputy Director of the Quang Ninh Department of Health said that related to the Van Don airport outbreak, by 4pm on January 28, 851 people had been identified as having contact with Covid-19 patients, including 466 F1, 382 F2 and 2 F3.

By the evening of January 28, three provinces of Hai Phong, Hai Duong, and Quang Ninh recorded 14 more community infections.
