HANOI, Dec 4 (Vietnam News/ANN): Local authorities in Hanoi are expanding home isolation for F0 and F1 cases in the city to 30 districts and townships, as prescribed by the health sector.

The requirement was made after the chairman of Hanoi’s People’s Committee Chu Ngọc Anh signed a dispatch to implement measures in response to a continued rise in Covid-19 cases in the city.

It is expected that the number of new cases will continue to rise rapidly, particularly as travel traditionally increases in the last months of the year.

There have been 1,751 new cases found in the city between November 25 to December 1, an average of 291 cases a day.

The chairman asked the Department of Health to guide districts and townships in strengthening measures that control the pandemic while increasing the speed of vaccine distribution.

The Department of Health will coordinate with the Department of Information and Communications to deploy software to manage the treatment of F0 cases at medical facilities and at home across the city.

Localities have coordinated with the Department of Health to set up facilities to provide treatment for mild and asymptomatic F0 cases following the mobile medical station model, ensuring each ward, communes and township have an average of at least 150 beds.

The dispatch also requests that more information be publically available, such as via the portals of districts and townships, to inform residents about the plan of quarantine and treatment for F0, F1 at home.

The Department of Tourism has been asked to cooperate with the Department of Health to review accommodation facilities that meet the requirements for F1 isolation.

The city assigned districts and townships to coordinate with the Capital Command and the Department of Transport to transport F1 cases to the city's concentrated isolation facilities within 12 hours of a positive test result.

The city chairman also assigned the Department of Education and Training to work with the Department of Health to inspect and guide localities in preparing for the return of students to school, ensuring absolute safety for students and teachers, while being ready to deal with any situation. — Vietnam News/ANN
