According to Assoc. Dr. Nguyen Huy Nga, when changing from Covid-19 to endemic disease, it is normal for F0 and F1 to go to work.

This is the view of Prof. Dr. Nguyen Huy Nga, former Director of the Department of Preventive Medicine, before the proposal of the Ministry of Health for F0 and F1 to go to work and have health monitoring instead of isolation; Asymptomatic F0 can return to work.

Specifically, the Ministry of Health proposes that the current F1 isolation period is 5 days (at home) for those who have had the full dose of the vaccine and 7 days for those who have not received the full dose.

With or without injection, both F1s can participate in face-to-face and online work, if working directly, human resource-using facilities must arrange a separate working area for F1s.

For F0, the Ministry of Health proposes that F0 who have no symptoms, are in quarantine for 7 days and have not had a negative test result, can return to work online; participate in the care of Covid-19 patients at home, accommodation or treatment facilities. If you work at a treatment facility, you must practice 5K and take precautions.

Expressing his views on this issue, Assoc. Nguyen Huy Nga, former Director of the Department of Preventive Medicine, Ministry of Health, said that: Currently, the Government has a roadmap to transfer Covid-19 disease from group A to group B – circulating diseases, F0, F1 going to work is a big deal. normal.

“But F0 here must be understood as F0 without symptoms, not a patient. F0 has two types, one is asymptomatic, it is not considered a patient; one is F0 has symptoms and is not allowed to work. It is natural because the Labor Law does not allow it”, Dr. Nguyen Huy Nga emphasized.

The former director of the Department of Preventive Medicine analyzed that for asymptomatic F0, they are only healthy carriers of the infection, not patients, so they can go to work, provided they must ensure they do not spread to the community. , do not spread to other people and they are healthy enough to work, but if they are patients, they cannot go to work. In the near future, the concept of F0 and F1 will be abandoned, but only the concept of sick and suspected infected people. The future only cares about people with symptoms, people in the hospital.

Dr. Nguyen Huy Nga said that allowing F0 and F1 to work in localities should apply this because there is a shortage of human resources and many people have no symptoms and are healthy enough to work, so if they are not allowed, they may not be able to work. still hid illness, did not declare to go to work.

“Workers still have to get paid, don’t go to work and have no income, so it’s even more dangerous for them to hide. Here, obviously I know they are carriers of the virus, so everyone can take precautions, but if they keep quiet, If you hide your status to go to work, there is a greater risk of infection,” Dr. Nguyen Huy Nga stated.

In addition, to prevent the epidemic, these people need to ensure 5K at work. For example, doctors and medical staff who go to work must avoid seriously ill, high-risk patients, must wear protective clothing…; and rubber dredge workers, farmers plowing fields or people working on the street such as sanitation workers can still go to work if their health is normal and fully implement 5K.
