Hai Duong Department of Industry and Trade proposed the Ministry of Industry and Trade to implement measures to support and facilitate goods circulation for this province.
Mr. Pham Thanh Hai, Director of Hai Duong Department of Industry and Trade, said that due to the inconsistent understanding and application among localities, vehicles come or go from the province to purchase agricultural products, supply materials and raw materials. Input … through the province you face many difficulties.
“Many localities communicate with the media to facilitate the circulation of goods, but in fact, most of the Covid-19 epidemic control stations and stations at the gateways to the neighboring provinces and cities are restricting cargo vehicles in and out of Hai Duong. Many freight cars still have to wait for a long time and then have to turn around, “said Mr. Hai.
Not only agricultural products, but also many other products are also facing difficulties. Before that, on February 18, Mr. Hai received a message from a plastic toy manufacturing company in Gia Loc for help. This man’s car was stuck in Thai Binh and could not be transferred for several days.
“We rented a car from Thai Binh to continue transporting. It is not allowed to transfer the car to the foot of the bridge to transfer to”, this person confided through a message and concluded “they make it difficult for me”.
Messages like this according to Mr. Hai are not uncommon in recent times. Currently the Department of Industry and Trade is going to “remove” each vehicle for businesses in the area.
The consequence of trade congestion, according to the Hai Duong Department of Industry and Trade, is that agricultural products have been damaged and thrown away; domestic animals and breeds are out of the barn but do not transport food to continue to keep the herd alive; raw materials and supplies for production are not available for workers to do; Export goods are due to be delivered but not delivered to the port … All these things cause great damage, long-term impacts on production and business and people’s lives.
The Department said that local drivers and deliverers must have a negative Covid-19 test (PCR test) within 3 days. However, the capacity to test for PCR in Hai Duong is still very limited because testing for F1 and F2 should be given priority, so the results are usually available after 1-2 days. At that time, the certificate has nearly expired to go through the latch.
Therefore, Hai Duong Department of Industry and Trade requested the Ministry of Industry and Trade to consult the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Transport and report to the Government to direct localities to consider and agree on how to apply epidemic prevention measures for people, vehicles, goods. This helps to create conditions for convenient transportation through the provinces in general, in particular epidemic zones.
Temporarily, Hai Duong proposes to apply measures such as wearing medical protective clothing, car disinfection … to help vehicles circulate in the short term, about 1-2 days before businesses have time. time to prepare.
At the meeting on the afternoon of February 19, the National Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention emphasized the point of “not considering the entire province of Hai Duong as an epidemic zone”. Accordingly, the Steering Committee proposed the Ministry of Health to re-publish on the portal the epidemic areas that must be controlled by people entering and leaving, and to other places to report and medical supervision.
Leaders of the Ministry of Health also emphasized that Hai Duong isolating the society to prevent epidemics, “it does not mean that neighboring provinces prevent rivers and markets”. The Ministry will send documents to localities and report to the Prime Minister on this issue. Currently, Hai Duong has 5 major outbreaks in Chi Linh, Cam Giang, Kinh Mon, Nam Sach and Hai Duong city.
