The COVID-19 epidemic is still happening complicatedly in our country. The increased epidemic risk particularly occurs after Tet holidays when people return to big cities for working. Therefore, the health sector continues to advise people to seriously follow 5K for preventing the epidemic.

According to statistics from January 25, 2021 to the 5th of the Tan Suu Lunar New Year 2021, the country has recorded 719 domestic cases in 13 provinces and cities including Hai Duong (537), Quang Ninh (60), Ho Chi Minh City (36), Hanoi (34), Gia Lai (27), Binh Duong (06), Bac Ninh (05), Dien Bien (03), Hung Yen (03), Hoa Binh (02), Bac Giang (2), Hai Phong (01), Ha Giang (01).

Total cumulative number of SARS-CoV-2 positive cases in Vietnam was 2,311, including 1,412 domestic cases.

According to experts, current risk of disease in the community is always standing, particularly in big cities like Hanoi and HCMC while spread source of many cases of disease in the community is unknown, especially when people come back to work from localities.

COVID-19 disease is spread from person to person via inhalation, via saliva or nasopharyngeal secretions through coughing, sneezing or by contact with objects containing virus and then passing through hands, eyes, nose, mouth. Up to now, there is no specific treatment medicines and vaccine for disease prevention.

Therefore, in order to proactively control the risk of epidemic infestation and towards a dual goal of "both fighting against epidemic and developing economy" under the direction of the Government, people need to be vigilant and not to be subjective. At the same time, be proactive and honest in medical declaration, especially when coming/going from epidemic areas.

Implement measures to prevent the epidemic according to a message featuring 5K (in Vietnamese), including: Khau trang (facemask)- (Khu khuan) disinfection- (Khoang cach) distance- (Khong tu tap) no gathering – (Khai bao y te) health declaration for safely living with the COVID-19 pandemic. Good practice of 5K message is a "steel shield" to protect us against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Ministry of Health urges each citizen to act together and properly and fully comply with the Ministry of Health’s recommendations on epidemic prevention and control. Every citizen be a soldier on the epidemic prevention and control front.
