Vietnam Airlines brings home volunteer students, medical workers

A Vietnam Airlines flight has brought 130 students of Hanoi Medical University and hundreds of medical workers, who finished their tasks of helping Ho Chi Minh City and southern localities, fight COVID-19, back to Hanoi.

Earlier, these students had suspended their study to go to the southern region in response to the Health Ministry’s appeal. They helped local forces to take samples for COVID-19 testing and care for patients.

At present, hundreds of students and doctors of the Hanoi Medical University are still staying in HCM City and Binh Duong to continue pandemic prevention and control efforts.

As the national flag carrier, Vietnam Airlines plays an important role in transporting health workers and medical equipment and supplies between provinces and cities. Since the pandemic broke out, the airline has transported over 12,000 medical workers and hundreds of tonnes of medical equipment and vaccines.
