Sixty-seven people were killed in traffic accidents across Vietnam during the first four days of the 2024 Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday starting February 8, a decrease of 17 deaths, or 20.2 percent, compared to the same period of last year, the Ministry of Health reported on Monday.

The period also saw 9,920 cases of medical examination and emergency aid due to traffic accidents across the country, a reduction of 14.4 percent year on year.

These cases accounted for 6.6 percent of the total number of patients receiving examination and emergency aid over the first four days of Tet.

The number of examinations and hospital transfers due to serious conditions, and the fatalities in relation to traffic accidents dropped compared to last year’s Tet, the ministry commented.

All health facilities have strictly implemented the ministry’s direction on strengthening medical examination and treatment during the 2024 Tet festival, ensuring timely and effective services for patients.

Since 2012, Vietnam’s National Traffic Safety Committee has annually conducted a requiem in November to commemorate road traffic victims in response to the World Day of Remembrance for Victims of Road Traffic Accidents, which is held on the third Sunday of every November by the United Nations (UN).

Vietnam is among 45 UN member countries which managed to slash the number of traffic-related deaths by more than 30 percent during the 2011-20 period, the National Traffic Safety Committee recently announced, citing a report by the World Health Organization (WHO) released in December last year.

As a member of the Global Alliance of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) for Road Safety, Vietnam will attend the 4th Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety, scheduled to be held in Morocco from February 18 – 21, 2025 (GMCRS 2025).
