HCMC – Hai Duong Province will end the 15-day social distancing period from March 3, Pham Xuan Thang, secretary of the provincial Party Committee, told a meeting today, March 1.
Up to now, Hai Duong Province has put Covid-19 under control, contributing to keeping the province and the country safe, Thang said.
Thang also praised local agencies, competent forces and residents for their efforts in the fight against Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, over the past 33 days.
It is not necessary to extend the social distancing period, he said, adding that the province will shift to a new period of taking drastic measures to prevent the disease while facilitating economic development, the local media reported.
To effectively ward off the disease, Kinh Mon Town, Kim Thanh and Cam Giang districts and Hai Duong City were told to follow Covid-19 infection prevention and control guidelines in line with the prime minister’s Directive 15.
The remaining eight districts – Binh Giang, Gia Loc, Nam Sach, Ninh Giang, Thanh Ha, Thanh Mien, Tu Ky and Chi Linh City – will continue anti-Covid-19 measures in line with the prime minister’s Directive 19. These districts and the city were allowed to adjust social and business activities to make them suitable to their situation and minimize the impact on the economy, goods transportation and production.
