Through inspections at checkpoint No. 1 at the IC12 intersection on Noi Bai - Lao Cai highway and checkpoint No. 6 in Minh Quan commune, Tran Yen district, it could be seen that competent forces at the checkpoints have made great efforts to overcome difficulties and strictly perform assigned tasks in pandemic prevention and control such as receiving health declarations, taking samples for quick COVID-19 tests, and separating lanes for incoming vehicles.

Drivers have strictly complied with the epidemic prevention and control requirements of the forces. However, as the traffic volume has increased, while there is a small number of staff, leading to traffic jams and other problems.

Hanh, who is also Standing Deputy Head of the provincial Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control, asked authorities to increase medical workers to take samples for COVID-19 testing at a number of health quarantine checkpoints, and work closely together to prevent and handle cases of drivers or assistants who refuse to make health declarations or intentionally make dishonest declarations, or decline to have samples taken for quick COVID-19 testing.

The checkpoints were requested to make recommendations and provide leaflets to raise public awareness of pandemic prevention and control.
