Head of Government of Vietnam demands stepping up Covid vaccination

Hanoi, Jul 28 (Prensa Latina) The Vietnamese head of Government, Pham Minh Chinh, has urged the Ministry of Health and the provincial and city popular committees to accelerate the Covid-19 booster vaccination.

The Ministry of Health must also review and update the statistics on the demand for vaccines in the localities, from that date and until the end of the third quarter, for their timely allocation.

According to a document issued on Wednesday by the Government Office, the number of people infected with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in the country currently tends to increase again due to the emergence of some new variants of the Omicron strain.

The Ministry of Health announced in its daily report that 1,761 new Covid-19 cases were diagnosed in the last 24 hours, raising the number of patients reported since the pandemic began to 10,772,980.

About 11,400 patients with Covid-19 were detected in Vietnam in the last 10 days, of which 4,117 correspond to this week alone.

The Ministry of Health urged the provinces to accelerate the administration of the third dose of the vaccines for people from 12 years of age onwards and the basic one for children between five and 11 years of age, and also urged to reinforce communication efforts to raise awareness among the population about the persistence of the disease, as well as to intensify preventive measures and monitoring of the appearance of new strains of Covid-19 or other epidemics.
