I wanted to learn more about how Vietnam has managed to keep Covid under control. I was able to interview Professor Le Vu Anh, a public health leader and professor in Vietnam. Thanks also to Cathy Dang-Santa Ana for adding more background.
I learned some incredible things, including how the country learned from SARS to prioritize public health education and transparency. They have public health workers at the commune level. The government pays all costs for hospitalization and quarantine (including food!) for all.
