Mr. Phong said it needs to educate people not to throw facemasks scattered over the public. He asked to have measures to protect those who are working at quarantined places.
With regard to social activities, districts have disbursed 55.8 percent of public investment; therefore, relevant agencies and department must speed up public investment disbursement so that the city can achieve the goal of 80 percent in October.
Director of the Department of Health Professor Nguyen tan Binh said that the city has isolated 16 patients, all of them are in stable condition. Yesterday, 164 people having respiratory disease were taken to quarantined wards in hospital for testing. 139 were negative while others are waiting for their test result.
