Hanoi (VNA) – 
The National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control on September 9 discussed how to ensure safety as the country is about to resume certain international flights as from September 15. 

Some proposed conducting tests at airports and expand the testing at hospitals and in crowded events.

Acting Minister of Health Nguyen Thanh Long lauded the efforts by medical bio-product manufacturers over the past time, saying the locally-made test products have contributed to the initial successes Vietnam has gained in the pandemic combat. 

The ministry will facilitate the research and production of test products to better serve the fight against the pandemic in the new situation, he pledged./.
