In Vietnam, the number of COVID-19 infections is soaring. After successfully containing outbreaks early in the pandemic, cases have skyrocketed since April. On Saturday, the capital Hanoi went into a 15-day lockdown, to try and curb the wave of infections spreading from the south of Vietnam. Other regions have extended already existing lockdowns. Vietnam’s largest metro area Ho Chi Minh City is especially hard hit, with more than two-thirds of new daily infections.
