The merchandise amount to stabilize the Ho Chi Minh City market during the month of Quy Mao Tet holiday 2023 is estimated to satisfy 25-43 percent of the community’s demands. This is the information delivered by Deputy Director of the HCMC Department of Industry and Trade Le Huynh Minh in yesterday’s October summary meeting for socio-economic-medical tasks in the city.
The weather in Ho Chi Minh City is changed rapidly and unexpectedly between intense heat waves and sudden rain. This has led to an increase in the number of people catching seasonal influenza with mild or severe symptoms.
The hot, changing weather right now provides favorable conditions for hand-foot-mouth disease (HFM) and dengue fever (DHF) to spread widely in Ho Chi Minh City and other Southern provinces. Healthcare experts have warned of ‘epidemic within epidemic’ unless proper solutions are adopted to timely protect the public health.
