HCMC - Since March 13, several Vietnamese artists have lent a helping hand to the fight against the fast spreading coronavirus.

Singer Chi Pu has donated VND1 billion to build a negative pressure quarantine room in Hanoi and buy protective gear for health care workers, according to Tuoi Tre Online.

“I have been following the coronavirus situation. I know that the Government and relevant agencies are trying their best to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. It’s time for me and other citizens to help fight the pandemic,” the singer said. 

The Central Hospital for Tropical Diseases said on March 13 that singer Min had donated 10,000 face masks and 500 hand sanitizer bottles. The aid was given directly to the hospital by Nguyen Thanh Huyen, the representative of Min.

“Hospitals are facing a shortage of human resources, face masks and hand sanitizers, so we’d better provide some relief. I will continue to do what I can to help. Vietnam fighting!” she wrote on her Facebook.

Singer Ha Anh Tuan, director Cao Trung Hieu, and producer Minh Hoang have donated a negative pressure quarantine room imported from Germany to each of Hanoi, HCMC and Quang Ninh. Each room is priced at VND650 million.

The project is supported by doctor Nguyen Ngoc Son and German expert Rob De Zwart.

“This is what I have to do and most importantly I can contribute to the country’s fight against coronavirus,” Ha Anh Tuan said.
