In an interview granted to the Vietnam News Agency, the official also highlighted that Vietnam activated the response system “at the very early stage of the outbreak”, adding the country has strengthened the testing system along with the sharing of relevant information.

About Vietnam’s ability and capacity in successfully isolating the virus, Park said the WHO took note of and highly valued the capacity of Vietnam’s National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology in the work. “This demonstrates that Vietnam has a very strong infection laboratory system,” he added.

The official warned that in the time to come, there may be many cases occurring in Vietnam as well as other countries, and Vietnam needs to maintain its vigilance, supervision and preparedness against the epidemic. The people need to take the guidance by the WHO and keep their health, while the countries should share information on a timely basis, Park stressed.

At least 722 people have died from the virus in China while more than 34,000 have been infected, according to the latest official figures.

The Chinese foreign ministry said on Thursday that 19 foreigners have been infected in China, and two of them have recovered. The ministry refused to disclose their nationalities./.
