Hanoi bolsters rabies control measures amidst heightened summer risks

April 17, 2024

The Hanoi Center for Disease Control, operating under the municipal Department of Health, has been instructed to consistently update data on people diagnosed with confirmed or suspected rabies. The health department is required to provide adequate anti-rabies vaccinations for people bitten by rabid animals. They are also required to request grassroots authorities to form task forces responsible for capturing free-roaming cats and dogs, as well as ensuring that these task forces receive sufficient benefits. Authorities need to carry out anti-rabies vaccination drives to ensure the vaccination coverage reaches over 90 percent. Pursuant to this plan, the Vietnamese capital city ordered 579 wards, communes, and towns citywide to provide training for task forces in charge of catching free-ranging, suspected rabid dogs.
