HCM CITY — A livestream show produced by T Production and its partners called Thành Phố 18h (HCM City-18pm) highlights stories from doctors, nurses and artists who have been working together to boost morale and help in the battle against the COVID-19 virus, with the city deep in lockdown.

Stories by city celebrities who have helped the city's medical staff test people in blockaded areas are also featured.

Quỳnh Hoa, the show’s producer, said that more than 130 fashion models and artists in different fields have been participating in humanitarian works to lessen the hardship of citizens in isolated areas.

They have volunteered to work as coordinators for the vaccination programme, go shopping for quarantined people, and visit locked-down areas to take samples for COVID-19 testing.

“Our show, Thành Phố 18h, includes three topics: Connecting & Sharing, The Frontline and The Power of Positive Energy.”

“Through our show, we want to encourage people and inspire love, unity, mercy, energy and belief in the COVID-19 fight,” she said.
