Binh Thuan arranges 4,400 beds to take actions with Covid-19 outbreak at 3A-level

BTO- “The situation of Covid-19 epidemic in Binh Thuan is turning into a new phrase, in its 3rd phrase. The new infection cases are possible” – said Vice Chairman Nguyen Duc Hoa at a teleconference with 10 districts/towns on Monday morning (April 13th).

At the conference, the Department of Health reported that the locality has not recorded any new Covid-19 cases over the past 30 days. All F1contactors have been quarantined and tested negative with Sars-CoV-2 and are still under strict monitored by local authorities. Therefore, the widespread possibility of coronavirus in the community is basically limited.

However, in the upcoming time, a great number of Vietnamese expats in Laos, Cambodia and Thai return Vietnam by roads leading to Long An, Tay Ninh and Binh Phuoc provinces. Binh Thuan is possibly assigned to quarantine those expats. Therefore, the number of Covid-19 cases can be popped up again.

To make good preparations for such situation, the whole province plans to arrange about 4,400 beds for quarantined people. Currently, there are 32 compulsory quarantined facilities with about 3,442 beds in Binh Thuan. In addition, all 10 districts/towns/city have strictly abided by the Prime Minister’s Directive No.16 in the fight against Covid-19.

Concluding the meeting, Vice chairman Hoa urged the localities at all level to starkly control the outbreak, implement social distancing orders and complete all protective measures. The Department of Trade and Industry was requested to ensure staple commodities for the locals, while the Department of Education and Training keeps off the reel online training for students.
