A brief situation of the Covid-19 infection in Vietnam

The COVID-19 pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus was first recorded in Vietnam on January 23, 2020, with two confirmed cases in Ho Chi Minh City, both people from Wuhan city of Hubei province, China. As of March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic in Vietnam can be divided into two main stages of infection, with 22 days nationwide no new cases reported between the two periods. As of March 6, Vietnam began to record a series of new cases daily, most of whom were from epidemic regions in the world. Spread in the community is also taking place, this leads to the idea that phase three is beginning. As of April 10, Vietnam recorded 257 cases, of which 144 patients were discharged and no deaths were recorded.

What are the measures taken by your government to control this virus infection?

Vietnam has implemented measures to quarantine, monitor and restrict people from disease-free areas. Tourism and domestic trade are also limited. From 0 o'clock on April 1, Vietnam implemented social quarantine within 15 days, which is considered a higher measure to prevent disease but not a national blockade.

What has been learned in your country with regard to this pandemic?

Vietnamese people have the phrase "prevention is better than cure". In fact, countries that have been cautious from the start and take proactive measures to take precautionary measures will have less serious consequences.

Each person must be responsible for his / her health, even his life, for those around him and for the community and the country.

Comply with the following regulations:

・  Minimize going out, only going out when really necessary.

・  If forced to always wear a mask, keep the contact distance, preferably 2m.

・  Wash your hands often with soap or an antiseptic solution.

・  Regularly clean the house, clean it regularly, to keep it open and healthy activities.

・  Make medical declarations, update daily health situation, keep regular contact with health workers and health facilities.

How is this virus infection affecting your daily life and work? You might like to add in your other opinion?

Due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the income of workers was reduced, prices of consumer goods soar, scarcity of some items such as masks and antiseptic solutions, etc.

Due to the limited travel and contact, scientific research and teaching are seriously affected, which affects the project implementation schedule.

About my opinion:

・  - Stay calm before any situation, selective information to avoid fake news about the disease to avoid confusing yourself and those around you.

・  - Strictly follow the regulations and instructions of the health authorities.

・  - Avoid contacting people, maintaining online research activities, while not conducting field research, actively reading scientific papers, etc.
