German press praises Vietnam’s anti-pandemic model
Analyzing anti-pandemic models between developed and developing countries, the article on October 6 on German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung said Vietnam has acted as a positive role model for controlling and preventing the novel virus.
Creativeness and effective preventive measures, not wealth or higher education ground, play the decisive role in the battle against the coronavirus outbreak, it said, highlighting while the number of COVID-19 cases are increasing in most of the European countries, Vietnam, Mongolia and Thailand virtually wipe out the virus. The pooled testing initiative really works for countries that have small capacity in testing, it said.
