In his message, the PM said that Vietnam realized the danger of Covid-19 when it first hit international media headlines and has taken an array of preventive measures to fight epidemics as if fighting the enemy. 

“To date Vietnam has managed to keep the situation under good control. Almost 50% of the cases have recovered with zero fatality.”

The country also took immediate action to help people facing hardship, particularly the vulnerable, poor and workers, making sure that no one is left behind.

The PM also stressed the need of cooperation from and among all countries in the fight against Covid-19. 

‘Vietnam, in its capacity as the ASEAN Chair 2020 has issued the ASEAN Chair’s Statement on concerted actions against Covid-19 and is working with fellow member states to step up joint response’.

The country also shared information and experience, and provided medical supplies and equipment to other countries despite constraints.

The PM also suggested the WHO continue taking the lead in mobilizing and coordinating efforts, particularly in developing vaccine and treatment drugs and providing medical supplies and equipment. /.
