Dr Duong Quoc Cuong, head of the Medicine Management Department, said the Ministry of Health does not know the name of the vaccine that WHO would provide or who manufactures it but plans to buy a further 500,000 doses for high-risk groups after testing them.

However, Vietnam is familiar with four out of the five global A/H1N1 vaccine producers licensed by WHO.

The Preventive Health and Environment Department said 66 cases of swine flu were recorded in the country in the last week, with a 23-year-old woman from the southern province of Binh Phuoc succumbing to the disease.

The total tally in Vietnam is 10,866 infections and 42 deaths.

HCMC to provide $23mil loan to stabilize food prices during Tet

QĐND – Wednesday, October 21, 2009, 20:7 (GMT+7)

The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee has approved a plan to provide interest-free loans worth VND422 billion (US$23.4 million) to 13 food suppliers to secure adequate supply and stabilize prices of certain goods during Lunar New Year (Tet) next February.

The eight essential food items authorities have in mind are rice, sugar, cooking oil, poultry and meat, eggs, processed foods, fruits, and vegetables.

The supply of certain items like fruits, vegetables, processed foods, and meat will be increased, with poultry supply raised by half to 3,000 tons.

The supply of duck meat will remain unchanged at 500 tons but that of eggs will increase to 25 million, up from 15 million last year.

The administration has ordered the13 firms that will take part in the program to ensure quality, hygiene and safety, and that their prices are 10 percent lower than in the market and supply is 20-40 percent higher than normal.

The plan envisages the firms setting up 1,508 retail outlets, a three-fold increase from last year.

City vice chairwoman Nguyen Thi Hong said the program is open to more firms that can assure stable supply and distribution of foods.

This year’s loan amount is higher because there will be more items and suppliers than last year when nine firms shared VND409 billion.

Saigon Co.op will get VND100 billion compared to VND53 billion last year since the supermarket chain has agreed to supply many items.

These beneficiaries have to use the loans for the agreed purpose and repay it in six months, failing which they cannot join the program again.

Tet falls on February 15 next year.

Hospitals can provide swine flu consultations

In Vietnam Health on September 18, 2009 at 4:17 pm

Under guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health on September 17, medical facilities around the country can set up consultations and take tests for those who do not suffer flu-like symptoms but still want a check-up.

Workers in medical establishments need to provide timely treatment for suspect cases that have been in contact with those infected with swine flu.

Tamiflu should also be provided to those who are living in affected zones, even if they have not been tested, the ministry said.

The ministry also ordered hospitals in districts to keep infected people quarantined. Only seriously ill patients should be transferred from district hospitals to central hospitals.

Medics should strictly monitor those who are receiving treatment yet try to avoid moving people to other hospitals to avoid spreading the flu in the community.

On the same day, the ministry implemented prevention plans in southern and highland provinces where officials have neglected the virus.

Dr. Nguyen Huy Nga, director of the Department of Preventive Health and Environment, said the ministry is considering purchasing some dozes of vaccines for people belonging to high-risk groups, like those suffering chronic disease, the elderly, children, pregnant women and health workers.

He was also concerned that there will be a large outbreak during the upcoming flu season.

Dr. Nga said some provinces have ignored swine flu prevention and did not have detailed prevention plans.

The head of the Pasteur Institute, Tran Ngoc Huu, complained that his staffs are overloaded with conducting tests.

In addition, the institute owes VND4 billion for carrying out so many tests but the Ministry of Health has not provided any funds.

Health authorities on September 17 announced that 235 people tested positive for swine flu, raising the total number of A/H1N1 cases in the country to 5,961 with six deaths.

Of them, 4,593 people have been discharged from hospital, with the remaining being treated, all are reported to be in a stable condition.
