Each citizen and household should further raise their sense of responsibility in the COVID-19 fight, heard a seminar in Hanoi on November 15.

The seminar was jointly held by the Vietnamese Sociological Association (VSA) under the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Association, and the Institute of Sociology at the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences.

Associate Prof. Dr. Nguyen Duc Chien, from the Institute of Sociology, suggested localities work to raise the awareness of Party Committees, authorities and socio-political organisations in every community, residential areas about their role in pandemic prevention and control.

Businesspeople and owners of production and business facilities need to be made aware of their social responsibility in helping the community amid difficulties, he said, highlighting the role of voluntary social organisations and charity groups in the combat.

In his remarks, Prof. Dr. Nguyen Huu Minh, VSA President, said individuals, families and the community play a significant part in the pandemic fight in Vietnam over the past two years.

Their social responsibility has been reflected through their active response to appeals, their participation in common activities, and their confidence in the Government’s instruction.

The seminar is expected to withdraw lessons not only in COVID-19 response, but also in the management of other risks, he said.
