Hanoi plans to provide medical oxygen for 40,000 COVID-19 patients (07:47 18/08/2021)

HNP - The Hanoi People’s Committee issued Official Letter No. 187/PA-UBND on August 13 on planning to provide enough medical oxygen for a scenario in which the number of COVID-19 patients in the city reaches 40,000.

In order to effectively carry out the plan, the municipal People’s Committee called on engagement of the entire political system, relevant department, agencies and units.
The municipal authorities underscored the necessity of   close cooperation between forces to assure the capacity to store medical oxygen, supply and transport of the oxygen to the hospitals and medical facilities under the management of the Department of Health.
The plan is implemented in three phases, responding to scenarios in which the number of COVID-19 patients hits 10,000, 20,000, and 40,000, respectively.
The patients are classified in line with the severity of the disease based on the Ministry of Health's guidance. They are asymptomatic patients with mild (83.6%) and moderate levels (7%), severe patients needing oxygen (3.8%) and very severe patients needing invasive and non-invasive ventilation (3.6%), and critical patients and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) intervention (2%).
Therefore, there will be 3,120 patients requiring medical oxygen (9.4%) in case the number of coronavirus infections is up to 40,000.
Based on the disease severity, the treatment facilities,  will be divided. There will be separate establishments that care for moderate patients, severe and critical patients requiring intensive care treatment as well as those that treat mild and asymptomatic COVID-19 cases.
The plan aims to ensure enough  medical oxygen for hospitals and medical facilities under the management of the Department of Health, and use resources in the treatment of patients reasonably, economically, and effectively.
