Hanoi (VNA) – President Nguyen Xuan Phuc visited and presented gifts to medical workers at Da Nang and Da Nang C hospitals in the central city of Da Nang on January 13.

A leader of Da Nang Hospital informed the President that with 2,000 beds and 2,200 staff members, the hospital is a health care centre of the central and Central Highland regions. 

The hospital has received and treated 10,000 COVID-19 patients so far, with only two related deaths.

The Da Nang C hospital, which has 631 beds and over 700 staff members, also accomplished its tasks of caring for high-ranking Party and State officials in the central and Central Highlands regions, fighting the pandemic and conducting vaccination.

President Phuc hailed Da Nang Hospital for its effective treatment regimes, thus minimising serious and death cases. The Da Nang C Hospital was also lauded for sending hundreds of medical workers to Bac Giang, Ho Chi Minh City, Binh Duong and Da Nang to help with the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

On the occasion, he asked the municipal authorities to continue helping hospitals improve infrastructure and professional expertise, thus meeting public demand for health care and treatment. As the number of COVID-19 cases could rebound in the new normal situation, hospitals should stay prepared to respond to the pandemic, thus best protecting people’s health and lives.

The leader also conveyed his regards and encouragement to medical workers nationwide for making tireless efforts in the fight against the pandemic and protection of people’s health.

The same day, he attended an inauguration ceremony for a monument to nearly 100 heroic martyrs in Huong Que Nam village. Later, he presented gifts and offered New Year wishes to families of policy beneficiaries and ex-revolutionaries./.
