HCMC considers $38 mln Tet support for pandemic affected citizens

The HCMC labor department has proposed a VND870 billion ($38.3 million) Lunar New Year support package for those who've been badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Le Minh Tan, director of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, said Thursday that the proposed support package was VND58 billion more than the one provided for the previous Tet because subsequent impacts of the pandemic have pushed many households back into poverty.
