HCM City's Củ Chi District, District 7 find effective ways to control the outbreak

HCM CITY — Củ Chi District and District  七 in HCM City have kept the COVID- 一 九 outbreak under control thanks to strict and early management of infected cases, timely emergency care and an increase in the number of treatment beds.

Secretary of the HCM City Party Co妹妹ittee Nguyễn Văn Nên said a pilot "new normal” scheme for HCM City after September  一 五 will first operate in the two districts.

At an online meeting of the city Party Co妹妹ittee last Monday, Nên agreed with the HCM City’s Steering Co妹妹ittee of Epidemic Prevention and Control that District  七 and Củ Chi District have basically controlled the COVID- 一 九 epidemic and chose the two districts to pilot a new scheme of operation for HCM City after September  一 五. 

The outlying district of Củ Chi has recorded over  六,000 cases of COVID- 一 九, most of which have recovered. Very few cases have become severe. 

Chairman of the district People’s Co妹妹ittee Phạm Thị Thanh Hiền said that Củ Chi had stayed alert and developed a response strategy to minimise the number of deaths when the fourth wave broke out in June.

Separation of positive COVID- 一 九 cases has been Củ Chi District’s priority. While many were encouraged to visit the nearest medical facilities for an examination, some cases isolating at home have been closely monitored with support from doctors and volunteers.

Củ Chi stressed the importance of “remote interception” in reducing morbidity and morality rates among infected cases. 

About  一0 mobile medical teams were formed in many wards to take care of COVID- 一 九 patients and people with other conditions isolating at home.

Isolation zones have operated as nursing areas, creating comfortable conditions for patients during treatment.

Dr Trương Tấn Hùng from the Củ Chi District Medical Centre said that a relaxed and optimistic mindset is beneficial to patients' recovery. 

Isolation areas in Củ Chi District initially received and classified infected patients based on their level of illness and transferred them to upper-level hospitals offering COVID- 一 九 treatment.

However, due to overloading at upper-level hospitals, the area has been converted to a district hospital with COVID- 一 九 treatment for patients with mild to no symptoms.

Doctors there have quickly mobilised necessary equipment, drugs, first aid kits, oxygen tanks and operators to provide timely emergency care to seriously ill patients.

Hiền added that many volunteers were joining hands to help the medical force.

“Many teachers cooked lemongrass juice for infected cases on a daily basis, while young and healthy asymptomatic patients helped monitor elderly patients’ health staying in the same room in an effort to reduce the workload for doctors and nurses,” Hiền said.

Efforts to invest in low-level care kept the rate of seriously ill patients in Củ Chi at  三. 五 per cent, about  一 一 四 cases of the more than  三, 二00 cases in concentrated isolation zones in HCM City. More than  一0 people have died.

Deputy Health Minister Nguyễn Trường Sơn praised Củ Chi District’s efforts to maintain its green zone status and ensure quality of life for infected cases. 

Similarly, District  七 has taken the initiative to take care of infected patients from the beginning, helping to limit the morality rate.

Previously, the district recorded  一0 to  一 二 deaths per day. However, the number of deaths had fallen to one or two as of late August, while the average number of deaths per day in HCM City was more than  二 六0.

The chairman of District  七 People’s Co妹妹ittee, Hoàng Minh Tuấn Anh, said in early May when the city required each district to have about  二00 treatment beds, District  七 had prepared  三 三 facilities with about  三, 四00 beds capable of separating infected cases from the co妹妹unity. At the same time, a specialised hospital with COVID- 一 九 treatment, consisting of  六00 treatment beds and  一 五0 emergency beds, was built as well.

By the beginning of August, when the number of infected cases in HCM City had exceeded  一00,000 and hospitals were overloaded with patients, District  七 pioneered the operation of a co妹妹unity health system in  一0 wards to promptly support new cases in isolation areas. 

Each ward has a team of  一0 to  一 五 medical staff and volunteers, two hotlines, ambulances, medical equipment, wheelchairs and stretchers to help locals in small alleys. 

They have been able to take care of over  二, 五00 patients and  一, 八00 patients with suspected illness at home.

District  七 has also established  三 四 mobile medical stations with  八 三 doctors,  二 七 二 volunteers and medical staffs to provide treatment and primary care for co妹妹on diseases. Since August  二0, about  二, 五00 cases have been assisted and  八 六 locals have been transferred to designated hospitals.

Dr Nguyễn Thị Thu Nga, deputy director of District  七 Hospital, said that medical teams were trying to keep in touch with patients at home, which has helped reduce the number of severe cases, and thus the mortality rate.

Patients with moderate to severe symptoms are being treated at the  三,000-bed Hospital  一 六, the Intensive Care Centre (ICU) at Bạch Mai Hospital with  五00 beds, District  七 Hospital and some private hospitals.

When the number of critically ill patients increased in the early days of August, the Intensive Care Centre, which just went into operation, has solved the overloading problem. 

About  七0 per cent of patients from lower levels transferred to this hospital required mechanical ventilation. Support in terms of manpower and machinery from ICU has helped more than  二00 patients recover.

In order to share the burden with the city, a hospital offering COVID- 一 九 treatment in District  七 has installed a  三 二-tonne oxygen tank to provide healthcare for hundreds of patients, instead of having to change hundreds of bottles of oxygen every day.

Since April  二 七, HCM City has recorded more than  二 六 五,000 COVID- 一 九 cases. —- VNS
