Vietnam is willing to support Cambodia’s Covid-19 fight by sending medical experts, ventilators and masks, Health Minister Nguyen Thanh Long during a recent online meeting with his Cambodian counterpart Mam Buncheng.
Vietnam would send Cambodia 800 ventilators, around 2.3 million medical masks and other equipment, he added, saying the batch would be Vietnam's largest aid package for foreign countries in the Covid-19 fight.
Sharing Vietnam’s experience in fighting the coronavirus pandemic, Long said one of Vietnam’s lessons is to utilise the whole political system and population in the fight.
Collaboration between all Covid-19 treatment facilities meant that doctors could discuss treatment of difficult cases with each other.
"Remote diagnosis was very effective and successful for Vietnam during the first and second Covid-19 waves. During the third wave in Hai Duong, there were many severely ill patients but we managed to treat and save them all," he was cited by VnExpress as saying./.
