Infographic: COVID-19 risk levels by localities
VGP - The southern province of Bac Lieu is the only locality in Viet Nam to assess itself having the highest level of COVID-19 infection risk (level 4).
Ha Noi capital, Soc Trang, Ben Tre, and Tra Vinh provinces raised their risk levels from ‘green’ to ‘yellow’ while Long An province lowered risk level from ‘yellow’ to ‘green’.
Localities assess their own COVID-19 risk levels based on three indicators, namely the number of new community infections, the coverage of vaccinations, and the ability to receive and treat patients at all levels in accordance with the guidelines on safe adaption to the pandemic, as outlined by Government's Resolution 128/NQ-CP and health ministry's instructions.
Under Resolution No. 128, the four levels of pandemic risk are as follows: Level 1: low-risk (new normal) – labeled green; Level 2: medium-risk – labeled yellow; Level 3: high-risk – labeled orange and Level 4: very high-risk – labeled red.
