Under an instruction of the Ministry of Transport and the Hanoi Department of Transport, transportat enterprises (railway or coach) must ask passengers to make online medical declarations before each journey on domestic flights, trains, passenger ships and intercity buses from March 21.

Instructions for medical declaration are announced through loudspeakers at the terminals, Director of the My Dinh Bus Station in Nam Tu Liem district Ly Truong Son said, adding that his company has sent documents on medical declaration regulations to nearly 100 carriers operating at the station for them to strictly comply with.

Besides, the company’s staff who are technologically competent are available to support passengers to make medical declarations on their smartphones, Son added.

"We strictly control each bus, if they have not submitted medical declarations, we will not let them leave the terminal," said Trinh Hoai Lam, deputy director of the Nuoc Ngam Bus Station in Hoang Mai district.

A bus manager operating the route Nuoc Ngam - Thanh Hoa said that his passengers abide by the regulation and make full medical declaration.

All bus managers agreed with the regulation because the Covid-19 pandemic evolution is increasingly complicated and the medical declaration helps them control passengers’ health and journey, and makes it easier for the competent agencies to handle the disease.
