Interview with Prof. Si Huyen Nguyen, PNTU HCMC
Interviewed by: That Thong Ton, DĐKP Magazine
In the current corona situation, especially in the western countries, the Vietnam phenomenon is submerged. The low number of people with Sars-CoV-2 who are tested positive in Vietnam and no deaths from COVID-19 do taken scientists around the world aback, they can hardly believe these numbers. In the fight against COVID-19, Vietnam mainly pursues a policy with strict personal control, individual isolation and quarantine measures with selective implementation of the Sars-CoV-2 tests. Bearing in mind the high number of unreported and symptom-free people, these measures can certainly not be the only explanation that the spread of COVID-19 could and can be effectively controlled. Indeed, it has to be emphasized that a high mortality rate did not occur in Vietnam compared to Europe and USA. In this regard, we have had a conversation with Prof. Nguyen from the Pham Ngoc Thach University HCMC and did find highly interesting new aspects in the field that we would like to share with you.
