During a working session with the provincial leading officials, Deputy PM Dam, who is also head of the steering committee on nCoV prevention and control, spoke highly of their efforts in the fight over the recent past and asked them to pay more attention to the care for and protection of the old and children in disease-effected localities.

The police and the military in the province should get involved in the fight in a flexible, persistent and determined way to make locals clearly understand the need of the measures and abide by the guidance provided by authorities, he said, adding that the Government will set up a working team based in Vinh Phuc to make the fight more effective.

As of Tuesday morning, the province confirmed 10 nCoV patients while the number of suspected cases was 54. It has set up facilities capable of quarantining up to 500 people.

Earlier on February 7, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc inspected nCoV prevention work in the central coastal province of Thua Thien-Hue, which is one of the busiest tourist hubs in Viet Nam.

The Government of Viet Nam considers fighting the nCoV the top priority while seeking ways to foster trade exchanges with China in a bid to mitigate negative impacts of the epidemic on the economy./.
