To share the burden with doctors in the fight against COVID-19 while ensuring safety, limiting risks for their family members, Ho Chi Minh City’s Health Department has worked with some businesses in the locality to use hotels as shelters for medical staff of Hospital for Tropical Diseases and a Covid-19 treatment hospital after they finish their shifts.

To ensure safety, the city’s Health Department has thoroughly checked and sterilised the facility and provided training on preventive measures for hotel staff.

Many other hotels in Ho Chi Minh City and across the country have been called to join hands with local governments to support medical staff who are on the front line in the fight against COVID-19.

Providing medical staff with shelter after they have treated COVID-19 patients will help ensure the safety of their families as well as limiting the risk of the virus spreading.

It is expected that more hotels will be used to house medical staff from Ho Chi Minh City’s Tropical Diseases Hospital and the Cu Chi and Can Gio Covid-19 treatment hospitals./.
