Hanoi medical staff set off to help southern Covid-19 hotspot

Hundreds of medical staff from around the country have set off to help southern provinces over the last few days, where the number of Covid-19 infections has been increasing rapidly. Responding to a call from the Ministry of Health, staff at the Friendship Hospital in Hanoi have provided assistance in fighting the outbreak in Ho Chi Minh City.


For these staff, who have been fighting Covid-19 in many hotspots, this trip is even more special because they know it will be quite long.

The hospital’s delegation includes 10 doctors and 25 nurses, who are young and enthusiastic and specialize in emergency and intensive care treatment.

The entire team has been fully vaccinated and are equipped with professional knowledge about the treatment of Covid-19 patients.

More than 4,000 health workers around the country have been supporting Ho Chi Minh City.

As the number of Covid-19 cases in the city continues to rise, however, the Ministry of Health is calling on more doctors, nurses, and medical technicians to help relieve some of the burden on the city’s healthcare system./.
