HCM CITY — With the increasing incidence of COVID-19 across the country, the HCM City People’s Committee has instructed the police and Department of Transport to set up 12 checkpoints at the city’s gateways by May 15 to head off any possible spread by infected visitors.

Lieutenant Colonel Nguyễn Văn Bình, deputy head of the Traffic Police Division, told Tuổi Trẻ (Youth) newspaper that at the checkpoints officials will measure the temperature of everyone entering by vehicle during non-peak times.

During peak hours the checks would be done randomly to avoid traffic jams, he said, adding people would be told to disinfect their hands and fill health declarations.

Vaccination

Military Hospital 175 and the Border Guard Command of Tây Ninh Province on May 12 started the second phase of COVID vaccination involving more than 1,000 soldiers stationed at the border gate in Tây Ninh.

Of them, 600 are receiving the second dose.

It will take seven days.

The hospital has personnel and facilities at the vaccination sites to take care of anyone reporting side effects. — VNS
