Determined to protect anti-pandemic results

Update: 06-07-2022 | 11:54:11

In the first 6 months of 2022, Binh Duong recorded a sharp decrease in the number of Covid-19 infections and the number of severe cases. This shows that the province is still controlling the pandemic well. Currently, vaccination against Covid-19 is enhanced with 3 and 4 doses at all ages, especially children and workers to create a "shield" to protect the community, creating a safe and stable environment for enterprises and people to recover production and business activities has been drastically implemented by the province.

Further controlling pandemic well

Doctor Huynh Minh Chin, Deputy Director of provincial Department of Health said that from the beginning of the year to July 4, the province recorded 93,055 Covid-19 cases, including 12 cases of Omicron variant infection. Among the 12 cases, there were 4 foreign experts and 8 cases recorded in the community. “Over the past 30 days, the number of newly infected cases was 32, down 91.5% compared to the previous month. In particular, in the last 7 days, the whole province recorded only 12 new cases and no severe case. The province had 101 cases cured, mostly at home, with no deaths", said doctor Chin.

Provincial health sector continues focusing on giving Covid-19 vaccine booster to people

According to provincial Department of Health, up to now, the province has recorded 383,726 Covid-19 cases and 3,475 deaths, accounting for 0.9% of infections. Currently, all 91 communes, wards and towns in the province are assessed as being at level at 1 (normal level). The Covid-19 wave is increasing in some countries. In particular, the "stealth" Omicron sub-lineage BA.2 has become the dominant global variant, accounting for nearly 94% of the gene sequencing samples. The World Health Organization (WHO) has been tracing Omicron sub-lineages BA.1, BA.2, B.A.1.1 and BA.3. Along with that, two new sub-variants, BA.4 and BA.5 are attracting the attention of medical experts because the genetic mutations of the virus can evade the immune barrier against infection like vaccines or in people who got Covid-19. According to leader of provincial health sector, although the pandemic situation across the country in general and Binh Duong province in particular is currently being well controlled with the number of new cases, severe cases and deaths falling sharply, but we should not be subjective and neglectful in pandemic prevention and control.

According to the health sector’s recommendations, in the current flexible adaptation conditions, related to pandemic prevention measures in the new period, the most important thing is still the sense of self-defense among people. They are encouraged to protect themselves by further wearing masks and disinfecting hands frequently. Particularly, subjects such as the elderly who have not been vaccinated, the elderly with underlying diseases, children and those who have not got the pandemic with underlying diseases ... are still recommended to limit gatherings in large numbers because when being infected, they can face the serious development of the pandemic.

Covid-19 vaccine booster shots for people

The Covid-19 vaccine is considered as a "shield" to protect people and the community against the prolonged Covid-19 pandemic. Giving 3rd and 4th booster shots of Covid-19 vaccines for people is still a priority of the health sector in the current period. As of July 4, the province implemented injections for children aged at 5 -11 with the number of injections reaching nearly 135,000 doses. For children aged at 12 - 17, the rate of 1st injection was nearly 206,000 doses, reaching more than 114%; the second dose was 183,045 doses, reaching over 101% and the third dose was 18,134 doses.

For people aged at 18 and over who received the first injection, the province also administered more than 2.4 million doses, reaching 116.7%. There were also more than 2.1 million second doses, more than 1.6 million third doses and nearly 113,000 doses administered. With the above data, it can be said that Binh Duong is now one of localities with a high percentage of people being vaccinated in the country, especially third and fourth booster shots.

Dr.Nguyen Hong Chuong, Director of provincial Department of Health said that the sector’s key task in Covid-19 prevention and control in the coming time is to further give vaccination for people. Specifically, provincial Department of Health will continue administering Covid-19 vaccine for children aged at 5-11 in the province; deploying fourth doses of Covid-19 vaccine for people, third doses of vaccine for children aged at 12-17 under the direction of the Ministry of Health. The department will continue "cleaning" Covid-19 vaccination data and deploy to sign the "vaccine passport" under the guidance of the Ministry of Health.

Vo Van Minh, Vice-Secretary of provincial Party Committee, Chairman of provincial People's Committee said that one of the health sector’s key tasks and solutions in the last 6 months of 2022 is to focus on Covid-19 prevention and control, especially consolidate and improve the quality of grassroots health care, vaccination coverage for people. The province will urgently put its 1,500-bed General Hospital into operation; study the form of investment in the last-line General Hospital with a scale of 2,000 beds while removing difficulties in procurement of equipment, supplies and drugs at hospitals; study the establishment of councils for procurement, especially in the fields of health and education.

As of July 4, the province implemented injections for children from 5 to 11 years old with the number of injections reaching nearly 135,000 doses. For children aged at 12 - 17, the rate of 1st injection was nearly 206,000 doses, reaching more than 114%; the second dose was 183,045 doses, reaching over 101% and the third dose was 18,134 doses. For people aged at 18 and over who received the first injection, the province also administered more than 2.4 million doses, reaching 116.7%. There were also more than 2.1 million second doses, more than 1.6 million third doses and nearly 113,000 doses administered...
