WHO praises Vietnam's early response to COVID-19 threat

Recommended Posts

Only 16 cases so far detected in Vietnam, with 7 patients released.

 

Quote

The World Health Organization said in a statement Saturday that the first days of the outbreak, when China had detected just 27 cases of the acute respiratory disease, Covid-19, in Wuhan City, Vietnam’s Health Ministry had already issued prevention guidelines, including close monitoring of border areas and steps to prevent possible infections among people.

 

When China confirmed the first death caused by the new coronavirus on January 11, Vietnam quickly tightened medical control at all border gates and airports. Visitors’ body temperature was checked on arrival; and anyone showing symptoms of cough, fever, chest pain or breathing difficulties were isolated for testing and strictly monitored at medical facilities.

Smart decision. No wonder VietN is attracting so many foreigners and many who leave Thailand to spend long the long winter months in Nam.

I wonder if foreigners in Thailand get the same kind of luxury?

Winter in Nam is horrible....cold and wet...unless you're living south of Nha Trang, where it's similar to Thailand.
