VGP – Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam called on each citizen to uphold responsibility to protect health and even life of himself and surrounding people as the current COVID-19 fight demands 'high-level of focus.'

Dam, who is head of the Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control made the call at the committee’s meeting Wednesday amid rising infections since March 6.

The virus is somewhere near everyone, thus anyone may contract it and transmit to others if we do not seriously abide by official instructions, he said.

The Deputy PM called on people to stay indoor as much as possible, keep distance from others and wear facemasks, wash hands regularly, clean house, and report medical status.

As of 8 pm on Wednesday, the Ministry of Health confirmed 141 infection cases in Viet Nam, of whom 17 have recovered and exited hospitals.

The current patients include 31 foreign nationals, two frontline doctors and two nurses./.
