SITUATION UPDATE: September 2022  

 Vietnam was known as the country that has a fast response to the cases. Unfortunately, as the virus continuously mutates – now Vietnam is hit by the fast-spreading Omicron variant, with  3,000 confirmed cases by the end of August 2022. Many argue that this data is much lower than the actual cases as many residents were self-testing and self-quarantining. To date, the number of confirmed deaths reached more than 43,110, who are mostly the elderly or residents that have not received complete vaccine doses. With these  increased cases , the Vietnamese Government  plans to re-activate  field hospitals if another Covid-19 wave breaks. Vietnam has delivered up to 248 million vaccine shots, and the Government is considering roll-out of 4th dose for the communities. 

Current Needs 

As stated, most deaths were in the elderly and people that have not completed a full vaccine dose. The greatest needs currently are:  

  • Accelerating the next vaccination dose to health workers, vulnerable groups, and high-risk groups with chronic situations that rely on ventilators 
  • Support for vulnerable groups, including meals, rice, and livelihood support  
  • Employment for those who lost jobs due to the COVID-19 situation  
  • Funding for local subject matter experts
