Prompt actions have been taken to prevent the spread, detect infections, quarantine infected and suspected cases, seal off affected areas, and suppress the outbreak.

Also, due to the complicated developments of COVID-19, the first-ever online book fair will be held from 19 April to 20 May 20 in celebration of the seventh Vietnam Book Day, which falls on 21 April each year.
