ĐẮK LẮK — A health station in Đắk Lắk Province’s Cư ÊBur Commune was found closed yesterday, when Deputy Prime Minister Vũ Đức Đam and a health ministry team made a surprise visit.
It was an unexpected visit, made at noon, because the health station in the Central Highlands province was not listed in the team’s inspection schedule for yesterday, a report in Tuổi trẻ (Youth) online newspaper said.
Đam and his team were on their way to check dengue-fever prevention activities in Central Highlands localities, when the impromptu visit took place.
Đam found all glass doors of the station locked and the medical equipment inside the station covered in layers of dust.
An official of the provincial health department tried in vain to contact the head of the health station by phone.
According to a local resident, the health station opened only from Monday to Thursday. It remained closed from Friday to Sunday.
Đam immediately ordered the provincial administration to quickly rectify the situation. — VNS
