NDO/VNA – The national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines operated five flights on October 5 to transport close to 1,000 medical workers and medical students back to Hanoi after they completed their mission in assisting the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and the pandemic situation in the southern region has changed for the better.
The medical workers and students are from many medical institutions in northern localities such as Hanoi and Cao Bang, Dien Bien, and Thanh Hoa provinces.
The group flew to Ho Chi Minh City in August and September to support the city’s pandemic fight. They worked at temporary COVID-19 treatment hospitals and helped with the collection of samples for testing and other logistics tasks.
In response to the pandemic, Vietnam Airlines has to date transported nearly 12,000 medical workers and hundreds of tonnes of medical supplies and equipment and vaccines across localities nationwide.
