Speaking at the ceremony, Lieutenant General Hoang Xuan Chien, Deputy Minister of Defense, said that in 2020, the world had witnessed the unprecedented effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing countries to close borders, halting international aviation, and much other trade and cooperation activities. This has affected the peacekeeping operations of the United Nations, including the troop's exchange at the South Sudanese Mission, which has been prolonged for nearly 5 months.

Chien directed the Field Hospital No. 2 in South Sudan to perform the following missions:

(1) Receive comprehensive operation of the Field Hospital to ensure uninterrupted health for UN staff, raise awareness of pandemic prevention, strictly comply with the professional direction and guidance of agencies and units in the host country as well as the UN to avoid Covid-19 infection, perform reasonable treatment and thoroughly isolate suspected cases.

(2) Continue monitoring the Covid-19 pandemic in the locality; regularly report to the Vietnam Peacekeeping Department and its authorities for guidance.

(3) Actively research and improve medical expertise in order to provide quality and prestigious healthcare services in the locality.
