Music video honors frontline medical workers


As COVID-19 is affecting countries all over the world, people are understandably in need of a little cheering up – and that includes frontline medical workers who have made immense personal sacrifices to beat the virus.

That’s why two Vietnamese singers, Đạt G and Du Uyên, got together to pen a song that honors our frontliners’ contributions in our country’s battle against the coronavirus outbreak, and that also encourages everyone to stay home and keep each other safe against the virus.

On 29th March, Đạt G and Du Uyên released the song called DIỆT GIẶC CORONA (Slay Corona), to much acclaim on Youtube and social media.

Pay tribute to our heroes


Thanks to the tireless efforts of medical workers nationwide, Vietnam has not reported any deaths so far, nor any newly emerged cases yesterday morning and this morning. We have also reported 23 patients treated for COVID-19 who have tested negative for COVID-19 for a second time.

These are thanks to the medical workers and other healthcare frontliners who continually show up for work to contain the pandemic amid heightened risks of virus exposure. Let’s show our appreciation for them by staying at home to flatten the transmission curve, and sharing health and hygiene tips with our loved ones.
