Dana Kennedy cited the US Cable News Network (CNN) as saying Vietnam ignored China and the World Health Organization’s initial insistence that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission and deployed rapid measures like strict quarantine, and contact tracing.

Vietnam’s first coronavirus cases were not reported until January 23, but by that time the country was prepared, Kennedy said, adding that Vietnam declared a national epidemic on February 1, though it had just six confirmed cases.

According to the VNA, Kennedy went on that Vietnam declared a national epidemic on February 1 though it had just six confirmed cases nationwide. All flights between Vietnam and China were halted, followed by the suspension of visas to Chinese citizens the next day.

Vietnam later lifted social distancing rules in late April after a three-week shutdown but hasn’t reported any local infections for more than 40 days in a row. Businesses and schools have reopened, and life is slowly resuming at a normal pace.

The remainders are being treated at centrally- and provincially-run hospitals. All of them are in stable condition. Seven patients tested negative for the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 once, and 22 others tested negative for the virus twice or more.
