Speaking at the ceremony, Chairwoman of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee of Ho Chi Minh City To Thi Bich Chau thanked for the supports of people, enterprises and benefactors to fight the Covid-19 pandemic in the city.
Currently, the city needs ten million Covid-19 antigen rapid test kits so the medical equipment and supplies are considered as a very meaningful gift at the current tough time. HCMC would like to thank the units for their great and timely supports this time to help the city medical sector soon repel the pandemic and bring Ho Chi Minh City to the new-normal state.
