The author quoted Peter Jenni, who lived in Viet Nam for many years, to make it clearer and more convincing for the successful story of Viet Nam. 

The initial situation was bad for Viet Nam as it shares a long border with China where the coronavirus disease first broke out, and Chinese are among the largest groups of tourists to Viet Nam. 

However, thanks to effective measures, Viet Nam has become one of the model nations in this fight.  

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Viet Nam has so far only had more than 300 cases of COVID-19, with zero fatalities. 

The country has gone through over 60 straight days without new infections in the community, while imported cases were mandatorily quarantined for 14 days upon arrival.

The article identified four reasons for the success of Viet Nam in containing the pandemic, saying that the Vietnamese government quickly introduced control measures right after the first cases were discovered./.
