The Hanoi mayor asked health and education authorities to closely supervise the health of candidates who returned from Danang, the country's Covid-19 epicenter.

Chairman of the Hanoi People's Committee Nguyen Duc Chung has demanded absolute safety for the national high school exams in the city amid a fresh Covid-19 outbreak in the country, Kinh Te & Do Thi reported.

Mr. Chung on August 9 morning inspected the examination organization and encouraged the candidates at Phan Dinh Phung high school where 680 students were taking the exams. Nearly 80,000 Hanoi students sit for the exams this year.

The Hanoi mayor asked authorities to closely supervise the health of candidates who returned from Danang, the country's Covid-19 epicenter. “We need to take combined measures to prevent the pandemic," Mr. Chung said.

At Phan Dinh Phung school venue, there were three test-takers returning from Danang. Although the three tested negative for coronavirus, a separate room was arranged only for them to ensure the safety for other candidates.

Regarding pandemic prevention measures, Mr. Chung requested that after each exam, the school must be disinfected at once. Besides, the school needs to make hand sanitizer and medical masks available for students as well as check their body temperature.

He also suggested that parents should not gather outside the school gates. Instead, they should leave after taking their children to the exam venue to ensure social distancing and avoid traffic congestion.

This year, for the first time, around 900,000 high school seniors in Vietnam take the two-day exam amid the Covid-19 resurgence.

The candidates have been divided into four groups, depending on their links with Covid-19: those under medical treatment for Covid-19, those under mass quarantine, those in close contact with suspected cases, and other students. The classification of candidates aims to ensure students’ rights as well as anti-Covid-19 measures in the current period.

The exam results would not only award a high-school certificate, but also decide admission to universities and colleges.

The followings are some photos taken at Phan Dinh Phung high school on August 9 morning:
