The provincial Border Guard Command should also advise the provincial People’s Committee to cancel or postpone festivals in border areas to prevent the spread of nCoV while cooperating with other agencies and units at all levels in equipping local people with preventive methods and raising their awareness of nCoV prevention. In addition, the unit should pay attention to the health of troops who are carrying out mission at border gates.

Over the past time, border posts in the province have worked with the local leadership to disseminate information relating to the prevention of the disease, updated nCov-related information with China’s border management forces, and made timely recommendations to the provincial People’s Committee on methods to prevent illegal immigration and the spread of the disease.
