Vietnam in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic

With the spirit of ‘fighting against the pandemic like fighting against an enemy’, the whole Vietnamese Party, armed forces and people have made an all-out effort to implement synchronous measures to prevent and combat the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Thanks to ceaseless efforts, Vietnam has been controlling the disease and has received appreciation from the international community as well as support and trust from its people.

While the pandemic is sweeping through the globe like a terrible flood, Vietnam has remained steady with a low rate of infection and no deaths. Right from the beginning of the outbreak in China in January, Vietnamese authorities from central to local level have implemented prompt and effective measures in response to the pandemic.

As the centre of the pandemic shifted to Europe, Vietnam implemented an early social distancing policy and deployed one of the world's largest isolation campaigns for people returning from abroad while isolating infected people and conducting medical traceability for anyone who had contact with COVID-19 patients.



Messages regarding the prevention of and fight against the COVID-19 pandemic have been spread everywhere to raise public awareness of and responsibility for disease prevention and control. Facemasks have become an indispensable item for everyone.

Millions of facemasks have been provided to local people and tourists to control the disease.
