NDO – The Secretariat of the Party Central Committee has issued Official Dispatch No.79/CV-TW to call on party committees of provinces, cities, and central agencies to intensify prevention measures against the acute respiratory illness caused by a new strain of corona virus.

The Secretariat requested party committees and organisations, the Fatherland Front committees and mass organisations at all levels to thoroughly grasp and strictly implement the Prime Minister’s Directive No. 05/CT-TTg, dated January 28, on the prevention and control of the virus.

In the Official Dispatch, the Secretariat identified the prevention and control of the acute respiratory illness caused by a new strain of corona virus as a key and urgent task requiring the engagement of the entire political system in order to protect public health and life.

Localities and agencies are urged to step up the supervision work in order to detect infections early, keep a close watch on the situation and set forth countermeasures.

The PCC Commission for Mass Mobilisation, the Vietnam Fatherland Front and mass organisations from the central to local levels must raise people's awareness to synchronously implement preventive measures against the virus, and promote the role and responsibility of every citizen in protecting and improving the health of themselves as well as their communities.

The PCC Commission for Communication and Education shall concentrate on directing press agencies to intensify information dissemination and promptly provide accurate information on the prevention and fight against the virus.
