WHO representative in Viet Nam Park Ki-dong said on February 7 about Viet Nam’s efforts in the fight against the spread of the disease.

In an interview granted to the Viet Nam News Agency, the official also highlighted that Viet Nam activated the response system “at the very early stage of the outbreak”, adding the country has strengthened the testing system along with the sharing of relevant information.

About Viet Nam’s ability and capacity in successfully isolating the virus, Park said the WHO took note of and highly valued the capacity of Viet Nam’s National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology in the work. “This demonstrates that Viet Nam has a very strong infection laboratory system,” he added.

The official warned that in the time to come, there may be many cases occurring in Viet Nam as well as other countries, and Viet Nam needs to maintain its vigilance, supervision and preparedness against the epidemic. The people need to take the guidance by the WHO and keep their health, while the countries should share information on a timely basis, Park stressed./VNA./.
