Corona Virus Deaths Zero Strict Measures To Control Infection Vietnam May 23 at 19:27
As the spread of the new coronavirus continues to spread around the world, strict measures have been taken in Putnam to reduce the number of people infected with 324. Vietnamese Prime Minister Hook wants to accelerate the recovery of the damaged economy by actively appealing for these achievements and attracting foreign investment and tourists.
In order to prevent the spread of infection, Vietnam has launched strict measures, such as strengthening water-near-water measures, thorough isolation, and limiting economic activity.
Only 324 people have been infected so far, and the government has been gradually easing restrictions since the middle of last month.
Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Suan Phuok, who has led the measures, said in an interview with some overseas media, including THE SUN, that “the first priority was to protect the lives of the people, not to neglect the health of the people, not to worry about economic damage, but to recognize that strict measures have led to the suppression of infection.
On the other hand, in response to the hit economy, Mr. Hook said that “suppressing infection scares foreign investors and tourists into Vietnam,” and expressed his intention to accelerate the recovery by actively appealing for the results of the curb and attracting foreign investment and tourists.
At the same time, the government has clarified its policy of strengthening support for corporate activities by establishing an investment environment such as tax cuts for companies and preferential treatment on contracts.
“We put the lives of our people before the economy.”
The Vietnamese government has come up with a series of strict measures to put the lives of its citizens before the economy.
Since late January, the Vietnamese government has isolated the infected and contacted people after the first reported infected person in the country, and in early February banned foreigners who had stayed in China for the past 14 days.
In March, in response to the spread of the infection, mainly those returning from abroad, we implemented isolation for all visitors and strengthened water-like measures, such as banning foreigners from entering the country. In areas where cluster-mass infections occurred, we also implemented restrictions on behavior, such as blocking the entrance of the district with a fence so that residents would not be able to come and go freely.
According to the government, the total number of residents and foreigners who have been quarantined is close to 1,000,000.
Since the number of infected people continued to increase since last month, the government has taken tougher measures, such as restricting unnecessary and unnecessary out-of-business and stopping the operation of stores other than supermarkets and pharmacies.
The government’s strict measures have so far resulted in 324 infected people in Vietnam, far less than other Southeast Asian countries, where the number of people infected is still spreading, such as the Philippines and Indonesia. There was also no one dead.
As a result, since the middle of last month, the government has eased restrictions, and department stores and schools, as well as public transportation such as buses and railways, have resumed in urban areas such as hanoi, the capital, and Ho Chi Minh City in the south.
In addition, the domestic football league was allowed to play with spectators who had not been recognized before, and on the 22nd, many fans were seen rushing to the sales floor for tickets to the match.
“Rapid inspection system” and “thorough quarantine measures”
Prof. Ta Hasebe, a Professor at the Vietnam-based Institute of Tropical Medicine at Nagasaki University, who has been conducting joint research on infectious diseases with local research institutes for many years in the capital Hanoi, said of the Vietnamese government’s response, “We took strict measures to reduce infections in the city before the outbreak occurred. The measures went very well.”
Professor Hasebe cited the establishment of a rapid inspection system and thorough isolation measures as the main factors.
In terms of establishing an inspection system, he pointed out that the steady accumulation of knowledge and skills obtained from a team of experts in Japan and other countries in response to past infectious diseases such as SARS and bird flu has been very useful in this response.
Prof. Hasebe said, “Vietnam does not have any special inspection kits or therapeutic agents, but the government has made early decisions and implemented what needs to be done,” and expressed the view that the rapid implementation of basic measures such as inspection and isolation led to the suppression of infection.
In addition, he points out that Vietnam is a political system that can limit the behavior of the people against the backdrop of some degree of coercion, and that the national character of the people who acted in accordance with the government’s measures contributed greatly.
On the other hand, he said that the situation in the future was “successful in suppressing infections, but since the medical standards in the first place are not high, it will be difficult to respond if certain infected people enter in the first place,” and he is appealing for the need to remain vigilant.
