From early on, General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong has called on the whole country to implement precautionary measures against COVID 19. Vietnam sacrifices short-term economic advantages to protect people’s health.
"Hanoi quickly traced people with possible contact with COVID-19 patients. People who have direct contact with infectious cases would be quarantined in medical centers and military barracks. Meanwhile, individuals having indirect contact would be quarantined at their home under the supervision of community and grassroots health clinics. At peak period, we arranged concentrated isolation facitilities for over 50,000 people, supervising self-isolation for more than 120,000 people”, Mr. Chung added.

The Chairman of Hanoi People's Committee emphasized that in addition to the quick response, Vietnam also provides and propagandizes information related to the epidemic widely to all citizens. At the same time, the country supplied rapid tests and active treatment for all patients. All healthcare and treatment costs are free of charge.
All these uniform and drastic measures are typical reasons for the success of Vietnam in general and Hanoi in particular in the combat with COVID 19.
“We agree that it is necessary to establish cooperation between cities to share experience against COVID 19. This would be one of the effective ways to deal with COVID 19 pandemic. It is also the foundation for countries to keep cooperating, from which can recover economy severely affected by COVID 19”, Mr. Chung said.
