HCM City (VNA) - Cameras to monitor environmental violations will be installed in all districts, according to the HCM City People’s Committee.

The city has recommended that district people’s committees place the cameras in areas where environmental violations occur most frequently, such as schools and hospitals and on streets.

The chairperson of the district people’s committees is also expected to be responsible for overseeing public hygiene in their districts, according to the city’s People’s Committee.
