From today, my roommates are seriously in our room, maintain online learning and self-study. I also helped the canteen staffs to prepare the meals for the students in the dorms. We all wear masks and ensure a 2-meter-distance as required. The meals are quite delicious and nutritious for us. I am very grateful to the University for creating the best conditions for us in this period”.
The Vice-Rector – Dr. Tran Doan Hung said: “Coping with the complicated situation of the Covid-19 epidemic, we believe that the strict implementation of social distancing in accordance with the Prime Minister's Directive 16 is essential. With our readiness, after receiving the Prime Minister's Directive 16, NTU immediately applied the plan to close the University, allowed officers, lecturers and students to work, teach and study online; at the same time, closed the dormitories and isolated room by room, joining hands for the safety and health of the community. The University units have quickly coordinated to closely supervise the process of social distancing in the University, on the other hand actively support students by ensuring three meals/day for nearly 200 domestic students and international students staying at the dormitories. We also hope that with the awareness and spirit for the community of our staff members and students in particular and the whole society in general, we will strictly implement strong measures of the authorities and guidances and instructions of the ministries, then we will soon stop this epidemic.”
