On August 17th, the police force of Dong Ngac ward, Bac Tu Liem district, Hanoi, patrolled and fined people who didn’t wear masks in public.

In densely populated areas and residential markets, especially on Ke Ve street (a street with heavy traffic in Dong Ngac ward, Bac Tu Liem district) in less than an hour, there are more than 10 cases of people not wearing masks that were handled by the interdisciplinary checkpoint of the police force of Dong Ngac ward and Bac Tu Liem district Health Center.

There are reasons such as: “leaving home too quickly so that forget to bring”, “the house nearby so do not bring masks”… There are even people who have masks in their pockets or hold masks in their hands but still “accidentally forget” to wear on the face.

The issue of prevention and control of Covid-19 epidemic-19 is not the responsibility of any single agency, department, or branch, but requires the cooperation of every citizen and the whole society. And it starts with the smallest act of wearing masks in public./.
