An official dispatch signed by Deputy PM Le Van Thanh on behalf of the PM on October 10 asked leaders of ministries, ministry-level agencies, Government agencies, steering committees for COVID-19 prevention and control, and provincial-level People’s Committees to ensure safe and flexible organisation of passenger transport alongside effective control of COVID-19.

It noted the resumption of passenger transport in the current situation holds special importance to reactivating production and business activities and meeting people’s travel demand.

On October 8, the PM ordered air transport to be reopened, but the Ministry of Transport (MoT) reported that some localities have yet to adhere to this request or regulations set by the MoT and the Ministry of Health, the dispatch said, telling localities to make a review and seriously comply with the abovementioned instructions.

To meet economic recovery and travel demand, the MoT was asked to base on the Health Ministry’s guidance on COVID-19 prevention and control to closely work with localities to issue rules and guidelines on rail and road transport of passengers nationwide, within three days since the date of the dispatch issuance.
