Speaking at the ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Japan Vu Hong Nam called on all officials and employees of the Vietnamese embassy and representative offices in Japan, along with the Vietnamese community in Japan to actively support the country's pandemic prevention and control. This is aimed at the dual goal of pandemic prevention, people's health protection, and socio-economic recovery and development.

Many Vietnamese in Japan have expressed their feelings about contributing to the Covid-19 fight in their homeland.

Nguyen Xuan Yen, an overseas Vietnamese living in Saitama province, said: “I am an overseas Vietnamese living in Japan. We look forward to participating in supporting Covid-19 prevention efforts in Vietnam so that the pandemic can end quickly.”

In addition, overseas Vietnamese also expressed their strong confidence in the Government's effective disease prevention measures. At the same time, they hope that with the cooperation of the Government and people at home and abroad, Vietnam will soon overcome the pandemic.

Hoang Dinh Giang, chairman of Yo Group, said: “I find the Government's Covid-19 prevention measures very effective. As an overseas Vietnamese living in Japan, I came here today to respond to the donation movement to support Vietnam's Covid-19 vaccine fund. I hope with the efforts and joint efforts of the Government and people, we will quickly overcome the pandemic.”

On this occasion, Ambassador Vu Hong Nam highly appreciated the awareness of pandemic prevention and the spirit of solidarity and mutual love among the Vietnamese community in Japan after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. During the pandemic, due to compliance and full implementation of preventive measures, the number of Vietnamese infected with Covid-19 in Japan is not much and no deaths have been recorded.

Japan will provide free vaccinations for everyone, including the expatriate community living in Japan. In the coming time, the Vietnamese Embassy will coordinate with VANJ (Vietnamese Academic Network in Japan) to support the Vietnamese community in order to protect the health of workers and international students in Japan.
