It was that belief that was lit, religious dignitaries mobilized and united religious people to strictly observe the State’s regulations on epidemic prevention and control, upholding the sense of civic responsibility to the country. Many religious activities and ceremonies have been suspended or cancelled. But all religious people agree to do it, all for the health of the community, for the safety of society. Those meaningful deeds, as President Ho Chi Minh said, “all religions are compassionate and humane”.
