Mature child walks into ambulance van all by herself 


For the past 4 weeks, Saigon has recorded daily locally acquired COVID-19 infections. With more neighborhoods going into isolation, the sound of sirens blaring day and night, coupled with the sight of people being herded into ambulances have become the norm.

Nonetheless, it’s hard not to feel sad when seeing family members separated by the pandemic. 

Many netizens felt the same when they saw a 5-year-old child in Binh Chanh, who tested positive for COVID-19, walk into an ambulance van all alone.

Here’s how the mature child proves that even the youngest of us all can be brave in the face of uncertainty.

In a TikTok video that has been widely shared, a child clad in protective gear was seen walking into an ambulance van all by herself.

The sight of the obedient 5-year-old child looking somewhat lonely has touched many netizens’ hearts.  

According to the OP – a medical worker – the little girl walked into the van bound for Trung Vuong Hospital to seek treatment for her COVID-19 diagnosis.

After the girl’s father had contracted COVID-19, her mother was sent into a dedicated quarantine facility for treatment. The girl stayed with her grandmother, who later caught the coronavirus.

The girl has been reunited with her grandmother in the hospital and is doing well, Soha reported.


Kudos to the mature girl for her bravery


We think that the young child’s bravery despite her situation deserves our commendation.

Though most children may have felt afraid while being separated from their caregivers, the 5-year-old in this story conducted herself with maturity beyond her years.

We wish her and her family a swift recovery.
