A survey on Vietnamese’perception towards COVID-19 outbreak


/4th wave of the outbreak (05/2021)

Since the first COVID-19 infected case was confirmed in January 2020, Vietnam is now at the 4th wave of COVID-19 outbreak as the whole world is fighting against the unprecedented pandemic. Throughout the first year of the outbreak, Vietnam was recognized as one of the few countries in the world that witnessed positive economic growth, eventhough it was much smaller than normal higher growth rate that Vietnam had been possessing before 2020.

However, as the world is half-way into the second year of this so-called “new normal”, many heavily affected countries have managed to implement a fast and wide vaccination program in hope to achieve herd immunity and bring back the “old normal” of free movement as soon as possible. Meanwhile, Vietnam is somehow struggling with its 4th wave of the pandemic with rapid increase in the number of community-spread infected cases. Whether or not the newly developed types of vaccine would show effective result any time soon, and whether or not Vietnam would be able to handle this harsh wave as effectively as it did in the past without hurting the economic activities, it is still a question left without concrete answer at this point of a historic time.
