The Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Information and Communications, and the Ministry of Public Security, on November 13, agreed that the PC-Covid application is the only application for the Covid-19 prevention and control. Besides, the VN-eID application, managed by the Ministry of Public Security serving citizen identification, will be a long-term application to serve society.
The VN-eID application is also integrated with some functions for the prevention of the Covid-19 pandemic. The two applications, VN-eID and PC-Covid, will work connectedly and share data smoothly. At the same time, the three ministries also require unifying the use of QR codes. Specifically, people will use QR codes on citizen identification cards. When using mobile applications, they will agree on how to display QR codes according to Decision No.1405/QD-BTTTT of the Ministry of Information and Communications dated September 11.
