Patients at low or medium risks will be treated at the first level including over 65-year-old people with or without chronic diseases at stable conditions; 50-64 year-old ones without chronic diseases and vaccination; people with stable chronic diseases with signs of fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, SpoO2 of over 97%. These patients will be admitted to field hospitals.

Patients at low risks are 50-64 fully vaccinated people without chronic diseases, unvaccinated people aged three months to under 49 without chronic diseases or with stable chronic disease with SpoO2 of over 97% will be treated at district-level medical stations.

Patients aged from three month to under 49 year-old with full doses of vaccination, non-pregnant women without serious symptoms, SpoO2 of over 97% will stay at home.
