In particular, the Ministry of Health of Vietnam reports and proposes to the Prime Minister to consider and direct ministries, branches, and localities to implement measures to prevent and control the COVID-19 epidemic in the new situation, specifically as follows:

The application of anti-epidemic measures is flexible and gradually moves towards the "new normal".

(3) Assigning the Ministry of Health ò Vietnam to continue to review, research and proactively adjust in the direction of gradually reducing measures to prevent and control the COVID-19 epidemic under the epidemic situation.

(4) Assigning ministries, ministerial-level agencies, and People's Committees of provinces and centrally-run cities to continue strictly implementing epidemic prevention and control measures as prescribed in Resolution 38/NQ-CP dated 17/17/ 3/2022 of the Government;

Consider reducing or loosening regulations, regulations, conditions, and guidelines on social measures to be consistent with health measures, creating more favorable conditions for organizations, agencies, businesses, and individual implementation, and creating conditions for socio-economic development activities.
