PM praises frontline medical workers

THE Party and the State have always acknowledged the contributions and sacrifices made by frontline medical forces in the fight against Covid-19, said Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh at a meeting with forces representatives nationwide.

He said frontline medical workers are an important force along with the military, police and others in combating the pandemic.

Those who made outstanding contributions deserve to be honoured, he said.

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam said many of those meeting the PM took on double tasks – being a doctor and a manager.

Frontline medical forces are not only military medics, police officers, nurses, students and volunteers who help doctors at hospitals but also nuns and even recovered patients. They have taken on duties similar to those of doctors.

“All medical forces have made extremely noble sacrifices and extraordinary efforts.

“The biggest reward for them is public recognition. Our fight against Covid-19 has not stopped. I hope we will continue in this spirit,” Dam said.

According to Minister of Health Nguyen Thanh Long, following the call from Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, hundreds of thousands of medical workers and technicians from pandemic-hit localities and 20,000 doctors and nurses mobilised from central and local healthcare facilities have been on duty for more than five months.

Many doctors and nurses volunteered to offer assistance in Covid-19 hot spots.

Their sacrifices have been shown through stories of a nurse leaving her child with grandparents to take on the duty, retired doctors travelling thousands of kilometres to the south or those who overcame the sorrow of losing relatives in the pandemic to continue their work.

Praising the medical forces for their contribution, Long sent thanks to sectors including local authorities, military forces, volunteers, local business communities and recovered patients for standing side by side with the medical workers to accomplish their tasks. — Vietnam News/ANN
