Hanoi (VNA) - The Thanh Cong Group and Hyundai Motor on May 12 presented 10 ambulances worth 10 billion VND (429,000 USD) to medical clinics on the frontlines of the COVID-19 fight.

The two worked together to transform regular Hyundai Solati vehicles into ambulances or specialised minibuses to carry doctors, patients, and those in quarantine.

Despite operations at the Hyundai factory in northern Ninh Binh province being suspended from April 1 to 23 to help contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, a division tasked with turning the Hyundai Solati vehicles into ambulances and specialised minibuses worked hard to complete the transformation. The first vehicles have been given to medical clinics to support their battle against the virus.

A representative from Hyundai Motor in Vietnam said the decision to provide the vehicles was in response to appeals from Party General Secretary and State President Nguyen Phu Trong and Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc for all to join hands in COVID-19 prevention and control./.
