Doctor Nguyen Thi Doan Trang: Silent soldier on front line of Covid-19 fight

(BGO) - During the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, preventive medicine workers are always devoted. They are like shields against the spread of the disease. Dr. Nguyen Thi Doan Trang (photo) from the Department of Infectious Diseases Control under the Bac Giang provincial Center for Disease Control is a typical example among them.

Since the beginning of this year, although the Covid-19 epidemic,which originated in China, was not very serious yet, the Vietnamese health sector, including the preventive medicine system, has actively developed response scenarios when there are suspected cases. This year, officials of the Department of Infectious Diseases Control in general and doctor Trang in particular almost had no Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday.

The second day of the Lunar New Year was the time when the first two suspected cases in the province, two Chinese who had just returned to Vietnam to work and stay at a hotel in Bac Giang city, showed a slight fever. Upon receiving the information, Trang left the unfinished Tet dinner for the task.

Immediately after meeting the suspected cases, she explored and verified their information, epidemiological factors and travel history; made a list of people having close contacts with them, and collaborated with the Laboratory Department to take specimens for coronavirus testing...

Dr. Trang did everything quickly, professionally and accurately to have the fastest report on the situation of these two suspected cases. Accessing them for epidemiological investigations posed many potential risks of infection, but Dr. Trang and the staff of the Department of Infectious Diseases Control did not hesitate to day and night zone off at-risk areas to stop the risk of the epidemic from the first days.

Graduating from the Hai Phong Medical University, Trang began her career in 2005. During 15 years of working, she has gone through many epidemics with certain successes. Dr. Trang said: "The success of a surgery can save a life, but a successful preventive medicine strategy can save millions of lives, extend life expectancy and improve the quality of life for the entire community.”

Since the first suspected cases of Covid-19, Dr. Trang and her colleagues have had no concept of a holiday as they are always busy working. March 7 was probably the most memorable day during the time she took over the task of preventing and fighting Covid-19.

That day, information about a man named Nguyen Van Hanh in Hong Ky commune (Yen The district) who had contact with a Covid-19 patient spread everywhere, making people very worried. Facing that situation, at 11am, she and her colleagues immediately undertook the task.

In the context of the complicated development of the Covid-19 pandemic, the silent battle of preventive medicine workers like Dr. Trang does not come to an end. But what the doctors here did in the past time has partly brought peace to the people, raising a belief that the disease will be soon controlled.

Before the sprint situation, without any delays, Trang and her colleagues tried their best from 11am to dawn the next day. The list of people in close contact with Hanh's family was made, each journey and travel history of the family members were carefully and fully recorded, analyzed, and evaluated in the most detailed way, as a basis for identifying those subject to quarantine and health monitoring.

Plans to lock down the residential area where Hanh lives were outlined by the provincial Center for Disease Control, but at 1am the next day, the first test results of his family members were negative for coronavirus. The results were announced to the public in Yen The district shortly after. So the people were reassured and no longer worried too much.
