Hanoi (VNA) – Permanent members of the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control has asked the Health Ministry to soon complete the closed management process for immigrants to Vietnam.

During a meeting on June 8 chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam, who is also head of the steering committee, they listened to reports on turning the reception of experts and overseas Vietnamese into a closed process as directed by the Prime Minister and the committee.

Participants called for making clear the responsibility of concerned units in following prevention and control regulations, and raising awareness of ensuring the community safety among immigrants. As planned, immigrants will be divided into different groups.

They shared the view that if things are under control, the pandemic will be basically curbed but several cases in the community are likely to appear.

They also urged relevant forces to stay vigilant and ready to combat the pandemic./.
