According to Tran Quang Tan, Director of the provincial Department of Industry and Trade, the commodity reserves and production capacity in the province can meet demands for necessities; thus, there is no need to worry about shortage of goods.

According to Dang Thanh Minh, Director of the provincial Center for Disease Control (CDC), currently the Center is only able to test 200 specimens per day while there is a large number of people prescribed for taking test specimens. Meanwhile, it is impossible to buy quick test kits for SARS-CoV-2 diagnosis because the suppliers prioritize Hanoi for patient screening.

In his conclusion, the provincial Vice Chairman Le Anh Duong said the province faces risk of virus infection from 2 main sources. The first is from the domestic affected areas mainly from Hanoi particularly the pandemic outbreak in Bach Mai Hospital. The second risk is from people returning from abroad but this source of infection is decreasing due to travel restrictions by Vietnam and other countries.

The provincial Vice Chairman Le Anh Duong urged the levels, sectors, units, enterprises and all people in the province to strictly obey the Prime Minister’s Directive on social isolation. The districts and city need to direct the local markets to open once per week and only allow people to go to the market for necessities.

Those who travel to Bac Giang daily from Hanoi for work have to stay in Bac Giang or work from home in Hanoi, not allowed day trip.

All people must wear face masks outdoors. Public transportation and ferries are temporarily stopped (except for employee shuttles).

This time, we need to continue paying high attention to grasping, isolating and supervising people from the affected areas while controlling all people with epidemiological factors especially those from Bach Mai Hospital.
