From the early morning of February 6, at the Youth Cultural House (District 1, Ho Chi Minh City), one of the most attractive tourist attractions in the city, the journey of the bus to give out free masks began to depart. The bus is 7 meters long, 3.1 meters wide, decorated with eye-catching yellow, equipped with two automatic mask generators.

People were instructed to queue up and keep a distance of 2 meters. As they approached the operating system, each person received two antibacterial cloth masks. In each distribution site, the project volunteers ensured the strict application of pandemic prevention regulations such as hand washing, keeping distance.

The program of the bus was held with the message "Wear a mask - Have a safe Tet" to strictly implement the message "5K" released by the Ministry of Health.
