Vietnam has been constantly reporting new batches of locally-infections in the past week. The development has put a lot of strain on not only the government, medical personnel, and other frontline workers, but the sorrow and frustration is also permeating among the community.
To lift everyone’s mood, encouraging everyone to be more positive in Vietnam’s ability in beating the novel coronavirus, many Internet users have simultaneously updated their avatars with cheering slogans like “Come on, Vietnam fighting!”, “Vietnam will beat COVID-19 pandemic”, “Stay optimistic, stay alert!”, etc. Along with such encouraging slogans, their avatars also featured images of doctors ready in the battle or Vietnamese flags.
