He made the acknowledgement while attending a musical program held by the Ministry of Health and Vietnam Television on the occasion of Vietnamese Doctors’ Day (February 27).

The Government leader lauded health workers’ devotion, wartime and peacetime alike, stressing that for over two years of the COVID-19 pandemic wreaking havoc around the world, the “soldiers in white blouses” have always been a beautiful image of medical ethics, bravery, and humanism.

He said each person wishes to express their thanks and support to health workers.

Party and State leaders, Party organizations, all-level administrations, and the entire people understand and sympathize with the difficulties, hardships, and sacrifice of the health sector, PM Chinh said, affirming that unceasingly improving public health is always the top priority of the Party and State, and that there remains much to be done to better meet people’s expectations.

The health sector does very heavy tasks to help with the safe and flexible adaptation to and effective control of COVID-19 so as to create an important basis for fast and sustainable socio-economic recovery and development.

To help ease the burden on medical workers and protect the health of each person, family, and the whole community, he called on everyone to uphold their sense of responsibility in the pandemic combat and vaccination.
