People of ethnic groups in the province have stayed calm and actively coordinated with Party committees and authorities at all levels in the disease combat. Hoa Binh province and Vietnam have initially contained the epidemic.
However, amidst the complex developments of the pandemic, the Standing Board of the provincial Party Committee has asked Party committees and administrations at all levels, the Fatherland Front and organisations to concentrate on the disease fight with the highest sense of responsibility, and determine to prevent the epidemic from breaking out.
They were also urged to implement urgent tasks, support the business community, maintain production and business, take care of people’s lives, and work together with people nationwide to materialise economic recovery measures.
The concrete tasks include stepping up the communication work to raise public awareness of COVID-19 prevention and control, conduct social distancing and promoting the role played by leaders of agencies and forces directly involved in the fight.
The Standing Board also called for spiritual, material and financial support to concerned forces, as well as timely assistance to needy people and labourers who are rendered jobless by the pandemic and those in the epidemic-hit areas.

Negative pressure rooms should be set up at the provincial General Hospital to serve the treatment. The conclusion highlighted the preparedness of venues and material facilities for mass quarantine and field hospitals.
