In addition, it requested all hospitals, health centers and medical facilities in the city to actively review their resources to be ready to respond when the COVID-19 pandemic worsens.

The city's Center for Disease Control was assigned to strengthen case surveillance through the Infectious Disease Surveillance System connected to the COVID-19 Digital Management Platform, with the focus on fluctuations in the number of new cases, and the status of vaccination for vulnerable people.

The Health Department also stressed the need to step up communications work to raise awareness of the importance of vaccination, and continue giving help to and managing COVID-19 patients at home through this platform.
