COVID-19: ICHR research shows highly effective preventive action by Vietnamese people

Despite the recent resurgence of COVID-19 in central Vietnam, there is clear evidence from ICHR research that Vietnamese people support collective social action to prevent infection.

ICHR researchers in Hue have collaborated with the University of Antwerp in Belgium as part of a Global Citizen Project in 22 countries. Findings from a survey of 2.175 Vietnamese adults in April 2020 have just  been published in the well-respected international scientific journal PLOS ONE.  It shows very high levels (>95%) adherence to guidelines for mask wearing, hand hygiene, covering while coughing, and avoidance of mass gatherings. There was also high levels (>90%) of health promoting behaviours such as physical activity at home and consumption of fresh foods.

A separate article published in the Journal of Infection shows that mask wearing in Vietnam is more acceptable than is found in some other countries. Recent online surveys in 206,729 persons residing in nine low- and middle-income countries showed that 32.7%-99.7% of respondents used face masks with significant differences across age groups and sexes

This research is continuing as the Coronavirus pandemic changes in Vietnam.  The second wave spread rapidly in several sites in Danang and Quang Nam, with fatal consequences. However it has been contained quickly. Despite  economic and social hardship during this time, the population has responded very well to prevent further spread, and the local and national governments support extensive testing, contact tracing and rigorously enforced containment. Our team will update on new findings as they emerge from ongoing research.
