Earlier, these students had suspended their study to go to the southern region in response to the Health Ministry’s appeal. They helped local forces to take samples for COVID-19 testing and care for patients.

At present, hundreds of students and doctors of the Ha Noi Medical University are still staying in HCM City and Binh Duong to continue pandemic prevention and control efforts.

As the national flag carrier, Viet Nam Airlines plays an important role in transporting health workers and medical equipment and supplies between provinces and cities. Since the pandemic broke out, the airline has transported over 12,000 medical workers and hundreds of tonnes of medical equipment and vaccines.
