NDO/VNA – The People's Committee of the central Quang Binh province on October 8 held a meeting with a local working delegation which will set off for Laos’ Khammouane province to aid its COVID-19 prevention and control on October 11.

The group, including members directly taking part in COVID-19 testing and other management and treatment works in Khammouane as well as sharing pandemic-prevention experience with their Lao peers, will work in the neighbouring country for 15 days.

Headed by deputy director of the provincial Department of External Affairs Nguyen Thanh Xuan, the delegation gathers personnel from Quang Binh’s center for disease control, Military Command, and Border Guard Command.

According to the centre, the group will bring two RT-PCR testing systems, biological products for 15,000 single test samples, and 1,000 hand tests, and other modern medical equipment to support the Lao province.

Speaking at the meeting, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committtee Tran Thang stressed that the sending of the delegation aims to promote the sense of responsibility, mutual support, solidarity, and friendship between Vietnam and Laos.

A representative of the delegation stated that they will make efforts to complete their mission in line with regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control.
