Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha has signed a decision on removing some documents on Covid-19 pandemic prevention and control.

One of the abolished documents is the prime minister's decision dated April 1, 2020 announcing the Covid-19 pandemic.

Other documents include decisions and directives issued by the prime minister and the National Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control regarding the pandemic control and prevention.

The first Covid-19 cases in the world were recorded in late December 2019 in Wuhan, China. In Vietnam, the first case was confirmed on Jan. 23, 2020.

Vietnam's Communist Party, army and people implemented drastic measures to prevent and control the pandemic.

Vietnam had gradually prevented and effectively controlled it. The country's achievements in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic have made an important contribution and created favorable conditions for socio-economic recovery and prosperity in most fields, officials said.

On Oct. 20, 2023, Vietnam officially moved Covid-19 from group A to group B infectious disease.

Earlier, on Jan. 29, 2020, the Ministry of Health classified Covid-19 as a Group A infectious disease which comprises particularly dangerous infectious diseases that can spread very fast and on a large scale and have a high mortality rate or unclear causes. Group B covers the infectious diseases that can spread fast and cause deaths.
