PANO - An Giang, a southwestern province, borders the Cambodian provinces of Kandal and Takeo. The province has over 100km of borderline, two international border gates, two main border gates and one auxiliary border gate. It also houses a number of rivers, canals running through the borderline, and border trails and border paths to serve commerce and travel of the people living along both sides of the borderline.

In the context that the COVID-19 pandemic has been developing unpredictably, and drug trafficking activities have been on the rise, local border guards, public security, and militia forces have tightened monitoring and enhanced guard at COVID-19 prevention checkpoints along the borderline. These activities have contributed to the successful implementation of the dual missions of COVID-19 prevention and control and socio-economic development.

Below are several photos of the quiet but noble deeds of forces at COVID-19 prevention checkpoints.
