The meeting is conducted in online meeting rooms, ensuring the regulations on disease prevention and control Covid-19.
According to the report, up to now, Binh Duong province has not recorded any positive case for SARS-CoV-2. However, the number of suspected cases increased, specifically: in the new period there were only 27 suspected cases (phase 01 had 05 cases), accumulated from the beginning of the outbreak to now, 32 suspected cases were sampled. As a result, up to 5:00pm on March 30th, 2020, 32 suspected cases have negative results with SARS-CoV-2.
The work of public health declaration via NCOVI application on smartphones, so far, according to statistics, about 35,000 people have declared in the province.

Regarding the preparation of quarantine zones, the provincial Military Command said that it was prepared and qualified to receive isolation. Through coordination with other agencies and localities to organize the survey, there were 3,010 beds to meet the quarantine.
According to the evaluation of the provincial Steering Committee, the disease situation in the world and in Viet Nam is complicated, the number of cases increasing daily. Binh Duong borders Ho Chi Minh City (currently Ho Chi Minh City has 48 cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection), the number of employees working in companies/ factories in the province but having a residence address in Ho Chi Minh City is very high, so the risk of disease entering the province is very high. Many cases of SARS-CoV-2 have no clinical manifestations (fever, cough, shortness of breath), therefore, it is difficult to detect to implement isolation measures, leading to the risk of spreading in the community and difficult to control. In addition, Binh Duong province was directed by the Military Region 7 Command to receive 3,850 cases from abroad, so it is likely that there will be a positive case for SARS-CoV-2 in the near future. The reception time is divided into 03 phases (March 31, April 6 and April 22), each reception has from 500 to 1,000 people.

Also carried out contracts with enterprises producing medical equipment. The department also worked with 12 large enterprises to provide food and foodstuffs, stabilize the market, and expected to reserve 15,000-17,000 tons of rice.
The provincial Steering Committee proposed solutions in the near future: Tightening management and control of sources of infection even more by means of early detection of cases returning from disease regions (including domestic and foreign countries) in each population area, promptly prevent the spread of disease. Cases of returning from Cambodia via trails, strictly apply isolation measures. Investigate, monitor, localize targets and promptly handle outbreaks if SARS-CoV-2 positive cases occur.
