Localities which have the situation under control should stick to their strategy of contact tracing, zoning, quarantining, and treating COVID-19 patients, experts said.

They suggested that localities hit hard by the pandemic, including Ho Chi Minh City, Binh Duong, Dong Nai, and Long An, manage clusters to slow down transmissions, improve treatment to reduce deaths, and speed up vaccination, while safely reopening production and trade by carefully monitoring entries and exits.
