The current Covid-19 situation in the northern province of Hai Duong has remained complicated, so all local check-points have continued to be maintained around-the-clock.
Lots of residents in Hai Duong have provided food to those working on the anti-Covid work. For instance, 103 households in a local residential area contributed 10 kilos of rice, one chicken and vegetables each.
Many charity groups have been set up to assist Hai Duong’s Covid-19 prevention and control task forces. Hua Hai Linh, a person in Hai Duong City, said that her family called on some other neighbours to jointly cook dishes for people who are on duty at Covid-19 check-points.

Linh said, initially, the families contributed VND4 million (USD173.91) for the work, but later the costs sharply increased. However, they agreed to use their own money.
According to Linh, she and other members from the group have to provide the food quite late. They often come back home at 2 am. After that they then have to go to market to buy products for cooking dishes the next day.
Despite the hard work, they feel happy to make contributions to the anti-Covid-19 work.
Vu Thi Lien along with her sister and friends have cooked sticky rice for the free supply to Covid-19 check-points in the province, prioritising those in districts such as Cam Giang and Kim Thanh.
Initially, Lien prepared only 100 sets of meat sticky rice, but the following days, the figure increased to 150. Her family’s two cars have been used for the sticky rice distribution.
