The President's request was written in a document sent by the President’s Office to the Central Emulation and Rewards Council on August 31.

Medical personnel actively contribute to the COVID-19 prevention and control.

The document said in response to Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong’s appeal and the national emulation campaign for concerted effort against the epidemic, the entire political system and people have made tremendous efforts, particularly front-line forces and individuals who volunteer to conduct charity works and deliver aid. Many of them have lost their lives while implementing their missions.

The President urged prompt rewards be made to timely encourage people and soldiers nationwide in the ongoing fight against the pandemic.
