Maria Van Kerkhove, the World Health Organization’s new team leader in the fight against coronavirus, said that Vietnam is an exemplary country to combat the epidemic. In the country of 96 million inhabitants, the first death due to the virus after a long break was recorded last Friday.
The new type of coronavirus epidemic, which emerged in Wuhan, China in late 2019, and affected the world in a short time, continues to spread throughout the world without slowing down. According to the World Health Organization data, while a new record is broken every day in the number of daily cases, the number of cases worldwide is based on 18.3 million.
“Is there a second wave coming?” brings to mind the question. On the other hand, there are no countries that can be appreciated for fighting against the epidemic. One of these countries is Vietnam, where the first death from coronavirus occurred after a long break last Friday.
World Health Organization: We must take Vietnam as an example in the fight against coronavirus
Speaking at a press conference today, Maria Van Kerkhove, the leader of the World Health Organization’s new anti-coronavirus team, said that Vietnam is an exemplary country to combat the epidemic.
Emphasizing that Vietnam is moving fast and far-reaching, Van Kerkhove said, “They have a system that can help control the outbreak. This is a system we should see in all countries. Vietnam has a huge experience in the fight against infectious diseases ”.
In addition to Van Kerkhove, Director of the World Health Organization Emergency Program. Michael Ryan also spoke of praise about Vietnam’s virus-fighting process. He said that Vietnam, which has a very light burden and low mortality rate, does not give any chance to the new type of coronavirus. Ryan also underlined that the country is doing everything possible to prevent major incidents.

Vietnam, which closed the tourist city of Da Nang for 14 days after the new cases were detected, announced that a coronavirus test will be made to 1.1 million people living in the city in order to prevent the epidemic from spreading across the country.
