But the WHO said the world remains in the pandemic and warned of possible new strains. As Vietnam is in the middle of the pandemic, Tuyen said the Ministry has developed response plans with appropriate prevention and control measures.

“The Ministry has guided isolation procedures for close contacts and temporarily suspended health declarations at airports. Although the pandemic has been controlled and Vietnam has a large vaccine coverage, the media should continue to call on people to be vigilant in pandemic prevention. This is particular important as Vietnam has fully reopened," said Tuyen.

Deputy Minister Tuyen said that Vietnam is among six countries with the highest vaccine coverage. Vietnam has completely reopened and is accelerating the vaccination of booster shot for those aged 18 and above.
