HCMC – Vietnam has extracted trillions of dong from the Central budget for ministries and the revelant agencies to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Finance Ministry, the central and local budgets were tapped for activities to prevent and control Covid-19 infection in the first four months of the year, reported Nguoi Lao Dong newspaper.

The Finance Ministry, in coordination with other ministries, submitted a plan to the prime minister to consider extracting VND2.8 trillion from the budget for the ministries of Health, National Defense and Public Security to fight the epidemic.

Besides this, following the Government’s Resolution No.42, dated April 9, regarding supporting policies for people who have encoutered difficulties due to Covid-19, the Finance Ministry sent a report to the Government and the Standing Committee of the National Assembly on setting aside VND20 trillion from the Central budget to support the affected localities.

Aside from expenditure on the fight against Covid-19, a sum of VND530 billion from the Central budget was spent during the January-April period to offer help to eight Mekong Delta localities to mitigate the severe impact of drought and salt water intrusion that they had suffered.
