HCMC – The health authority of Hanoi has ordered three hospitals in the capital city to suspend operations as they failed to meet requirements to prevent and control the Covid-19 infection, it was announced at a meeting held today, August 22.

Tran Thi Nhi Ha, deputy head of the municipal government, said that four working teams had been set up to inspect the measures at 46 of the 80 hospitals in the city to combat Covid-19.

Among the medical facilities inspected, three eye hospitals—Saigon-Hanoi Eye Hospital, Vietnam-Japan Eye Hospital and HiTec Eye Hospital—were ordered to suspend their operations and make improvements as they did not ensure safety measures were taken seriously while screening and quarantining suspected cases of Covid-19.

The Health Department also criticized other hospitals whose Covid-19 safety levels were low and ordered them to improve the situation.

Moreover, the department requested the working teams to re-examine these hospitals to promptly discover and address arising issues and ask hospital leaders to be held accountable for any shortcomings in the fight against the pandemic.
