To create favorable conditions for Hoc Mon Trade Joint Stock Company (HOTRACO) to complete the entire Covid-19 prevention and control plan, the People’s Committee of Hoc Mon District directed the company's board of directors to halt direct delivery of goods at the wholesale market in a week. 

Besides, the board of directors of HOTRACO is responsible for providing the notice to traders to apply online operations of goods transport, delivery and reception; and cooperate with the Department of Industry and Trade and the People’s Committee of Hoc Mon District to plan Covid-19 prevention and control to apply right after the market returns to normal operation.

The People’s Committee of Hoc Mon District also required large-scale disinfection in the whole market. 

The company needs to promptly allocate favorable sites outside the market for vehicles from other provinces  to temporarily drop down goods tomorrow morning as there isn't time for them to draw a new transport plan.
