Last news about covid in beautiful Vietnam

Not good ! Since over 2 months, new daily cases with "new" covid. Not to panic, 50-80 cases a day out of 97 000 000 inhabitants, but it borders closed to foreigners (unless you like to spend 21 says in quarantine), many restaurants closed (open only for delivery and take-out), as well as all public places such as movie theater, museums, temples and pagodas, etc. Total cases since Feb 2020 : 8354 , deaths remain at 51. LONG LIVE VIETNAM !

They are buying vaccines, but, right now, it is reserved to GVT employees

The last news about vaccination are not good. The Gvt will recognize a vaccination pass ONLY if the vaccines used are the same as the one used here.

Hmmm. So what vaccines are used there please. ? Does this mean non citizens can't enter if they have not had one of the vaccines used there?

Thank you.

Apparently not ! In fact all this is because the GVT does not want any foreigner until covid has disappeared for good (they were talking of opening for countries with 0 cases for a month). Can't blame them !!!

Puzzling. The three vaccines I mentioned have proven to be the most effective versus the two that the government requires. I Woodleigh donít understand that but letís see how this unfolds. Do you know if Vietnam is open for a cruise passengers?

Thank you. Just have to wait and see I suppose. Seems eventually they will have to open to vaccinated cruise passengers most of whom I think will have had one of the three aforementioned but not currently on their governments lists.

Cheers sir!
