Police and relevant forces was instructed to assist the patrol and control of cross-border activities via trails or rivers.

The HUFO's delegation recently has conducted a trip to Kien Giang province to visit and exchange experience with the provincial Union of Friendship Organizations as well as presented medical supplies and necessities worth VND 50 million (USD 2.100) to encourage the border guard forces at Ha Tien international border gate.

Although Vietnam has gone through 34 straight days without recording any single case of local transmission so far, the government still warned the fight against COVID-19 is not over yet and localities should remain highly vigilant against the possible resurgence of the virus.

Local border guards must continue vigilance against the disease to prevent imported cases.

Vietnam recorded one new imported case of COVID-19 on October 6, raising the national count to 1,098, according to the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control./.
