According to the National Steering Committee, the prevention and control of COVID-19 will face more difficulties as the winter comes, creating favorable weather conditions for the virus to develop and spread. In order to continue the implementation of the dual goal of fighting against the pandemic and promoting socio-economic development, the Ministry of Health recommends citizens and localities to continue implementing measures to prevent COVID-19.
