At an online meeting with districts on Covid-19 prevention on the afternoon of August 6, the Standing Committee of the Hanoi Party Committee requested relevant units to test PCR for all people returning from epidemic areas.

Chairman of the City People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung explained that because the number of people returning from Da Nang is too large (more than 96,000) while the city only has 80,000 rapid test samples left, there are currently more than 20,000 people who have not been tested.

All cases returning from Da Nang were tested by Hanoi City using PCR technique.

The city’s Covid-19 Prevention Steering Committee met with relevant units to review PCR testing capacity.

In addition, 11 hospitals in Hanoi also have the ability to test for PCR, but due to very low capacity, the city agreed to bring all staff of capable institutes to a focal point at the city CDC.

Mr. Chung assigned the ward and commune health stations and CDC to take samples from tomorrow (August 7) to do PCR tests for cases returning from Da Nang.

`If from now until August 12 there are no new cases, the city is safe. If there are new cases, it will be very unpredictable,` said the Hanoi Chairman.
