According to him, Vietnamese people perceive non-compliance with the measures as very irresponsible, so they adhere to anti-pandemic rules better than many Czechs.

The chairman stressed that he saw what lies behind Vietnamese discipline is years of experience in dealing with pandemics in their home country and in Asia, the Vietnam News Agency said.

“They are an example for us in discipline and adherence to hygiene rules,” he said.

He was also impressed by how Vietnam has fought the COVID-19 with only 35 deaths reported since the outset of the pandemic despite the fact that it has a population of more than 90 million. Strict preventive measures have been in place in the country since the beginning of this year, he noted.

"Since last February, anyone who wants to enter Vietnam has to go through a fortnight's quarantine in a state-designated camp or hotels," Mr. Kusy described. He also attributed the low number of infected cases in Vietnam to effective contact tracing.

According to Vietnam’s Health Ministry shows that Vietnam has gone through seven days without new COVID-19 cases. The national count remains at 2,576, of which 1,601 are locally-infected cases./.
