HCMC – Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam has asked the Ministry of Health to coordinate with the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Culture, Sports and Tourism to urgently issue guidelines to create conditions for those who have been injected with Covid-19 vaccines in other countries to enter Vietnam to ensure safety and serve the economic development and pandemic control efforts.
At a meeting of the national steering committee for Covid-19 infection prevention and control on March 5, the deputy minister, also head of the steering committee, asked the healthcare sector to research and improve the production of quick test kits.
To prevent the Covid-19 spread, Vietnam has not allowed tourists from other countries to enter the country since March 2020.
As Vietnam has announced its Covid-19 vaccine injection plan and citizens in many countries have been injected with Covid-19 vaccines, many entrepreneurs expected the local Government would allow them to welcome tourists again.
At the meeting, Deputy PM Dam also required healthcare centers, schools, lodging facilities, factories, supermarkets and coach stations to seriously employ pandemic prevention and control measures. Those failing to comply with regulations on fighting the pandemic will have their operations suspended.
