It has also requested leaders of agencies under municipal and provincial Departments of Labour - Invalids and Social Affairs to step up urgent measures against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Board of Overseas Labour should encourage Vietnamese labourers to stay calm, observe host countries’ regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control, and avoid trips to disease-hit areas, while ensuring rights and interests of the labourers who are affected by the epidemic.

The ministry urged medical declaration at the request of the Ministry of Health, especially among the elderly and sick people, and ensuring safety during social welfare payment.
