I know there were some on here who gave the impression that sharp lock-downs would put covid in its place, maybe covid has other ideas and just maybe vaccinations will be more useful that lock downs?
Until early July, Vietnam had reported less than 100 deaths since the start of the pandemic in 2020, but that had risen to more than 1,300 by 1 August. Around 85% of total coronavirus cases in Vietnam were reported in just the last month.
The health minister recently said that that the Delta variant was “destroying all anti-pandemic achievements” – but it is unclear how many cases are linked to the Delta variant.
Despite restrictions in place, cases continue to rise, with Ho Chi Minh City the worst affected area.
The vaccination programme has moved very slowly with only 0.68% of the population fully vaccinated as of 1 August.
So Vietnam did very well for the first fifteen months with the old strategy
but the Delta variant and not mass-vaccinating is becoming their nightmare
