NDO/VNA - The Ministry of National Defence has sent medical experts to Laos to exchange experience in COVID-19 prevention and control.

The Vietnamese side has presented medical supplies including face masks, protective gear and hand sanitiser, worth over VND3 billion (US$128,800) in total, to the Lao side.

Following a handing-over ceremony at Cau Treo Border Gate in Vietnam’s central province of Ha Tinh on April 7, Vietnamese experts travelled to the Lao capital, Vientiane, and held working sessions with the country’s national and government steering committees for COVID-19 prevention and control.

Under the instruction of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and Defense Minster Ngo Xuan Lich, military zones and units of the Ministry of National Defense stand ready to dispatch experts to Laos as necessary.
