Minister of Health Nguyen Thi Kim Tien and over 100 employees exercised for three minutes during break times 

Nguyen Thai Binh, spokesperson for the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, confirmed the information. He went on to say that this was the response to Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc's call on people to be more physically active and follow the Vietnam Health Programme.

It is hoped that the movement will help make exercise a daily habit for everyone. The ministry has asked its staff and subordinate units to exercise at least twice a day for five minutes each time. The subordinate units must also help promote physical activities and encourage the citizens to pick up suitable sports for daily exercises.

The General Department of Sports and Physical Training was asked to build light exercises for the people to work out during break times.

In February, Minister of Health Nguyen Thi Kim Tien and over 100 employees exercised for three minutes during break times.

"We'll start with the breaks during meetings and will exercise twice a day," Tien said.

According to Tien, exercising in the morning and afternoon will help prevent many diseases and boost the immune system.
