- The National Assembly (NA) Office on March 22 conducted
COVID-19 testing on all NA deputies and people involved in the organisation of the
upcoming 11th session of the 14th National Assembly from
March 24 to April 8.
Those receiving testing included NA deputies, high-ranking
guests, staff members at the NA Office and offices of NA deputy delegations of
centrally-run cities and provinces serving the session, and security forces
serving the plenum, and reporters and technicians from news agencies.
After samples were taken, they were provided
with a code and barcode to have their health monitored during the sitting.
The results of the tests will be announced
before the opening ceremony, the NA Office said.
Earlier, at the 54th meeting of the
NA Standing Committee, NA General Secretary and head of the NA Office Nguyen
Hanh Phuc said that the office had actively coordinated with relevant offices
to thoroughly prepare for the NA’s 11th plenum, and worked with the
Health Ministry in taking measures to ensure pandemic prevention and control,
including conducting COVID-19 testing./.
