Newly issued stamps raise public awareness in COVID-19 fight

VOV.VN - The Vietnam Post have collaborated with the Ministry of Information and Communications to launch a new postage stamp collection which calls for each person to increase their responsibility in terms of implementing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) prevention and control measures.

The collection features two stamps that have designs aimed at conveying a message of unity as a means of taking on the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first design showcases the 5K message in Vietnamese: Khau trang (face mask), Khu khuan (disinfection), Khoang cach (distance), Khong tu tap (no gathering), and Khai bao y te (health declaration). This is part of efforts to help citizens get used to  living safely alongside the COVID-19 pandemic.

The second design features a doctor preparing a COVID-19 vaccination which will serve to give the population immunity from the pandemic.

The new stamps are sized 32 x 43 (mm) and are being designed by local artist To Minh Trang, with each stamp costing VND6,000.

The collection is set to be available at 63 postal offices nationwide and will be officially used in the Universal Postal Union's 192 countries and territories from April 29 of this year to December 31, 2022.
