Deputy Minister of Health - Do Xuan Tuyen requested grassroots health network to focus on early detection of cases to minimize the spread to the community; coordinate with organizations and mass organizations to monitor the health and detect suspicious cases in the locality. Concentrated isolation areas did not receive supplies from organizations and individuals. Cases of home isolation had to strictly comply with the regulations of the Ministry of Health.

Communication on epidemics and preventive measures had to be strengthened on the mass media. The local Department of Health should continue to closely monitor the epidemic in the community; set up inspection teams for public and non-public health facilities in the area./.
