The command has built 115 checkpoints along the borderline to manage and prevent illegal border crossings, contributing to curb the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.
Besides, the local border guard force has worked closely with the local police to effectively prevent and control the disease, crimes and smuggling, contributing to maintaining local social order and safety, and safeguarding national border sovereignty and security.

This is not the first time that the HUFO has coordinated with foreign NGOs and business associations in Vietnam in organizing fund-raising programs, present medical supplies, and make contributions for the fight against the COVID-19 both inside and outside Vietnam.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, many member organizations under the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organizations (VUFO) have shown solidarity with international friends in combating COVID-19, by mobilizing funds from individials and businesses in Vietnam to purchase medical supplies as well as raising cash donations.
The aid illustrates Vietnam’s continued willingness to assist other countries on a bilateral and multilateral basis to the best of its abilities even as it continues to remain cautious about managing its own coronavirus challenge at home./.
