New Year’s Eve 2019: the time when the troublous decade ended to enter the new one expected by many places around the world for its new happiness and prosperities.
The decade of 2010 stuck it in Brexit, Syria civil war, refugee crisis, social network development and nationalism .... but the world had still lived as the way it normally used to. The time before wine and beer raised and seconds counted down for new year, the world saw the decade's most terrible crisis break out and affected seriously the next decade.
Today the world has lived through 100 days of Covid-19's crisis. There have been over 1.8m infectious cases, and over 114,000 lives claimed worldwide. Billions of people are confined to their homes and almost economies have plummeted.

Vietnam, a small nation positioned beside the east sea towards Pacific ocean and an ASEAN member, found itself unavoidable to the virus' attack. Earlier, Vietnam has taken series of strict and serious measures to prevent coronavirus invading its territory including: schools and public areas closures, social distancing, protective awareness propaganda, infected source trace, correct treatment...which combined both govermentals power and people's unanimity and obeying.
|As a result, Vietnam has gained some good achievement in its combat against Covid-19 and willingness to help other countries together defeat the virus. Vietnam today confirmed only morethan 262 infections but over 145 recovered and discharged from hospitals with cure rate by 56,4% , no death reported.|
Vietnam has made its review of Covid-19 fight from 23 March to see the steps for quick response to the coronavirus as an experience learned from losses, sweat and tears, and the world's blood and human lives also, for next battles unexpected but possibly occur in our world. The lessons and experience from Vietnam, not too much but considered one of the global winners against coronavirus until now by WHO, may be helpful and reference for some other countries struggling in Covid-19 fight.
