The functional forces have strengthened supervision at border gates, trails and open ways; mobilize translation forces at the barricades. The Provincial Market Management Department coordinates with functional branches to check the operation of Thanh Hoa farmer's market; functional branches ensure goods to serve the needs of the people, strictly handle cases of speculation and hoarding of goods. The health sector must uphold the sense of responsibility in the prevention and control of epidemics; and so on".
