The information was revealed by Director of the Hanoi municipal Health Department Nguyen Khac Hien during an online meeting on January 14.

The meeting was chaired by Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee and head of the municipal Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control Chu Xuan Dung.

Hanoi has gone through 150 consecutive days without new local transmissions, adding that districts and communes enhanced inspection and punished those who violated regulations on pandemic prevention and control, Deputy Director of the municipal Health Department Hoang Duc Hanh said.

Vice Commander of the Hanoi Capital High Command Maj. Gen. Do Thai Son expressed his concern over the complicated developments of illegal entries into the country in recent times, asking the city to direct units to thoroughly review concentrated quarantine facilities and strictly comply with regulations in the regard.

The Vietnam Fatherland Front chapters, mass organisations and residential areas were also urged to promptly discover illegal entries as the Lunar New Year is drawing near.

Concluding the event, Dung warned of the high risk of the virus resurgence in the community. He reminded districts, communes, townships to raise public awareness of prevention and control measures as recommended by the Health Ministry.

He simultaneously ordered to strictly crack down on those breaching the rules on the COVID-19 prevention and control such as not wearing face masks in public places.

The 13th National Party Congress is scheduled to take place in Hanoi from January 25 to February 2.

Passengers receive securiy check before handling boarding procedures


The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) on January 14 requested aviation security control be raised to Level 1 before, during and after the 13th National Party Congress.

Accordingly, aviation security control measures will be enhanced at all units in the sector, including airport authorities, airports, aviation service providers, air traffic service suppliers, Vietnamese airlines, and foreign carriers operating in Vietnam.

They will have to increase personnel for aviation security control; examine and supplement equipment, weapons, and support tools; and thoroughly prepare response plans for any circumstance.

In particular, relevant forces will apply various security control measures such as increasing visual inspection, random check, and screening by explosive detection devices so as to opportunely uncover abnormal acts and prevent unexpected incidents, thus ensuring absolute aviation security and safety for the 13th National Party Congress.

The 13th National Party Congress is scheduled to take place in Hanoi from January 25 to February 2.

Under current regulations, when there are high risks to aviation security, security control measures will be tightened according to three levels.

Level 1 is applied in case of nationally important socio-political events or complicated situation of political security and social order./.VNA
