From June 4 to now, the General Hospital of Cau Treo border gate, Huong Son district, is isolating and treating 56 Covid-19 patients. It is forecasted that the number of nCoV infections will continue to increase in the coming days, to reduce the load on this hospital, the province has built more facilities to treat patients with Covid-19.

The Department of Infectious Diseases (Ha Tinh Province General Hospital) Lung Hospital, Ky Anh District Medical Center welcomed a number of nCoV-infected patients for treatment. Hanoi Medical University Hospital has sent 8 staff to support Ha Tinh Provincial General Hospital with expertise in emergency resuscitation, testing, infection control, treatment of patients with underlying medical conditions requiring mechanical ventilation, hemodialysis, surgical intervention…

According to the leader of Ha Tinh Department of Health, the biggest difficulty in the prevention and control of Covid-19 in the area is the people’s awareness of medical declaration. Many cases returned from epidemic areas, were exposed to F0 but did not know, or were afraid to be isolated, so they did not make medical declarations or made crooked and incomplete declarations. This slows down the identification of epidemiological factors, and the risk of spreading the disease to the community is very large.

Ha Tinh health sector urges people in the province, if they have any information or suspect that they have been in contact with F0s, they should contact health workers for instructions, take samples for testing, and avoid spreading the disease.
