Vietnam is in the grip of the fourth Covid-19 outbreak which started on April 27. Since then, 3,644 infections have been reported across 33 provinces and cities, claiming 12 lives. The two northern provinces Bac Giang and Bac Ninh are the hardest-hit, with 1,927 and 736 cases respectively. Record new infections have continuously documented every day, most are linked to clusters at industrial parks.

The current wave has been predicted as more prolonged and complicated. However, it has basically been put under control as most of the new cases are either under quarantine or from blockaded areas. Infection sources have also been effectively traced.
