Yahoo Japan hails Vietnam’s progress in COVID-19 fight

(VOVWORLD) - Yahoo Japan has lauded Vietnam’s success in fighting COVID-19, saying Vietnam has  consolidated its prestige as ASEAN Chair this year. 

It cited a survey by British international market research and data analytics firm YouGov as revealing that 93 percent of Vietnamese people say they are satisfied with their government’s preventive measures - the highest response in all the countries surveyed.

The article said that although Vietnam shares a border with China, it has recorded no fatalities so far. Vietnam’s effective COVID-19 countermeasures include closing the border with China, limiting flights from abroad, launching software and portals which guide people on how to prevent the spread of the disease, and producing face masks for up to 12 million each day.

During its ASEAN Chairmanship Year 2020, Vietnam has promoted the organisation of the online Special ASEAN+3 Summit on COVID-19 response. With these achievements, Vietnam has proven its prestige and leading role in the bloc, the article concluded.
