Over the past few weeks, while a large number of overseas Vietnamese students have returned home amid COVID-19 concerns, others have decided to stay on in their host countries.

Instead of going to school as usual, for more than a week now, Le Ba Nhat Minh, a student at the University of Wollongong, Australia, has spent all his time at home studying online to prevent COVID-19 from spreading in response to the Australian government’s appeal amid the pandemic.
During the “self- lockdown”, Minh always keeps himself as busy as possible and follows all the government’s medical advice.
