Hanoi (VNA) – Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh on April 27 visited officers and soldiers of the Hanoi Capital High Command who are performing COVID-19 prevention and control tasks at the centre of defence and security education of the Vietnam National University, Hanoi.

At the working session, Commander Maj. Gen. Nguyen Quoc Duyet reported that the high command has received, transported, quarantined and handed over to other quarantine facilities more than 15,000 people, including over 12,000 Vietnamese and foreigners from other countries.

It has also coordinated with localities, quarantine centres, the Hanoi Department of Transport and the Hanoi Transport Service Corporation to bring nearly 3,000 people finishing the quarantine period to their hometowns.

Over the last three months, he added, officers and soldiers of the high command have kept a high sense of responsibility to brave difficulties to fulfil epidemic prevention and control tasks, and their efforts have been highly valued by the quarantined persons, including both Vietnamese and foreigners.

Lauding their contributions to the COVID-19 combat, Vice President Thinh attributed the achievements Vietnam has obtained so far to the entire political system’s engagement and all people’s unanimity and support.

She pointed out that the pandemic remains complex and unpredictable, adding in the spirit of “fighting the outbreak is like fighting an enemy”, officers and soldiers of the Hanoi Capital High Command need to press on with drastic actions to concurrently ensure security and defence and protect people’s health and lives./.
