Vietnam’s coronavirus fight in remarks

Early response and strong sentiment towards self and community safety are believed to be important reasons.

Vietnam has undergone two waves of novel coronavirus outbreaks with casualties and been on way for the economic recovery largely thanks to its timely response and strong sentiment against the virus.

Ambassadors have shown their remarks about the country’s tireless efforts in the Covid-19 fight.

So far, the country has passed 80 days with no local transmission while the confirmed cases stand at 1,304, mainly imported, and 35 deaths.

US Ambassador to Vietnam Dan Kritenbrink: “I want to commend the government of Vietnam which has done an outstanding job in its response to Covid-19 and continues to be proactive, cooperative, and transparent”. “I simply say thank you to all of the people in Vietnam working on the front lines of this fight. Your work is saving lives.”

The ambassador said the US has supported Vietnam in this fight since the very beginning of this crisis. Health team in the Embassy in Hanoi and Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City has been collaborating with the government of Vietnam to monitor and respond to the evolving Covid-19 situation. He noted: “We will continue this important work as the Covid-19 crisis continues and even after it’s resolved.”

Ambassador of Mexico to Vietnam Sara Valdes Bolaño said: “The Embassy of Mexico congratulates the government of Vietnam on its successful strategy in the fight to contain the Covid-19 epidemic in the country. The actions undertaken by Vietnam have been widely commended both by diplomats in Hanoi and international media.”

Norway’s Ambassador to Vietnam Grete Lochen: “I am very impressed with what the government of Vietnam has done so far to combat the coronavirus nationally, regionally and internationally.”

“Since the very early stage, you have proactively taken strong actions to isolate and prevent the virus from spreading through information campaigns, medical and administrative measures, such as tracing and testing of people, quarantine arrangements, closing of schools and the most recent measure of social distancing.”

“Vietnam has been actively sharing information and encouraging cooperation regarding Covid-19 within the ASEAN, and just recently took initiative in holding Special ASEAN Summit and Special ASEAN+3 Summit on the Covid-19 response through video conferences, for the first time.”

“It is encouraging to see Vietnam, while trying its best to control the spread of Covid-19 domestically, has started to reach out assisting its neighboring countries, ASEAN member states, and partners with medical equipment and face masks.

Ambassador of Italy to Vietnam Antonio Alessandro: “The Vietnamese authorities have reacted very well so far, since the very beginning of the epidemic. Although the number of cases is limited compared with the rest of the world, the government has introduced drastic preventive measures such as the suspension of entry for all foreigners, a strict traceability of the suspected infections and the compulsory social distancing for the resident population. These measures have proved to be very effective, as confirmed by the WHO and several international experts.”

“Their success is also due to the Vietnamese people who have strictly followed the instructions and have given priority to public health. The experience of SARS in 2003 and the lessons learned on that occasion have also helped Vietnam in preparing an effective response.”

 

Dato’ Shariffah Norhana Syed Mustaffa, ambassador of Malaysia to Vietnam commented “Through my observation, I can see that Vietnam has been doing well in controlling this global virus outbreak.”

“I believe that Vietnam’s results so far have shown that the country is winning the war against Covid-19 partly due to the availability of information, transparency of government and effective communication with the people, as well as, the urgency the government has shown in prioritizing the well-being and protection of its people’s health through decisive and essential measures.”

The ambassador emphasized: “Despite having limited resources in conducting mass testing upon its citizens, Vietnam has acted swiftly in tackling this issue from the get-go.”

Saadi Salama, Ambassador of the State of Palestine to Vietnam: “I strongly believe that with the support and compliance by Vietnamese people and the community of foreigners in Vietnam, Hanoi will definitely win the battle against the pandemic”.

British Ambassador to Vietnam Gareth Ward said: “We’re very fortunate to live and work in Vietnam.” Talking about the social distancing in the first two weeks of April, he said these restrictions are carried out to ensure public health and safety in Vietnam.

Meanwhile, Australian Ambassador to Vietnam Robyn Mudie believed that the Vietnamese government is doing an outstanding job in combatting the coronavirus. She affirmed that there’s “no reason to doubt” Vietnam’s coronavirus figures after many were skeptical about the transparency of the infections and deaths.

New Zealand Ambassador to Vietnam Wendy Matthews said Vietnam, as Chair of ASEAN 2020, has been active in uniting the bloc's state members to effective respond to the Covid-19 thanks to the foundation of a common funding against the pandemic. This is a great step for Vietnam in particular and for the whole region.

Cuban Ambassador to Vietnam Lianys Torres Rivera attributed the significant results to Vietnam’s strong and drastic measures of prevention and control.

She highlighted solidary and discipline in the fight against the pandemic among locals, saying they are among reasons contributing to that success that has been recognized worldwide and Vietnam completely deserves this recognition.

“With the very positive results that Vietnam has achieved in the fight against Covid-19, being foreigners, we feel very safe and secure when living in Vietnam,” the ambassador said. Hanoitimes
