On September 25, the People's Committee of Cu Chi District in collaboration with the Ho Chi Minh City Command and the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Tourism organized a tour named "Green journey to the Land of Steel" for more than 100 tourists who have been working in the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic in Ho Chi Minh City.
Speaking at the event, Chairwoman of the People's Council of Ho Chi Minh City Nguyen Thi Le said that doctors and nurses in protective suits in the scorching weather are still dedicated to saving patients day and night without sleep. Some people in the frontline force had to overcome their grief over the death of a loved one when they can’t say goodbye to their loved ones from afar in order to do their anti-pandemic mission.
