Editor’s note: Dr. Nguyen Minh Hoa believes that something should be done in order to stop people from migrating to Saigon, as the ‘promised land’ has become increasingly overcrowded to receive them all. As in the previous years, when the Lunar New Year is drawing near, I join my family members and my students to gather used clothes and bring them to internal migrants, to those homeless people who have to live on sidewalks across Saigon. Saigon is without a doubt a city of generosity where people are willing to help and share the hardship of those in need, and it is surely a ‘promised land,' but this land will inevitably become too crowded for everyone.

In a letter sent to all 63 cities and provinces Monday, the ministry stated the pandemic situation has grown more complex in many countries, especially with the appearance of the mutated strain Omicron, or B.1.1.529 Covid variant, first sequenced in South Africa and designated by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a top Variant of Concern (VOC). The WHO stated last week the variant had been detected in at least 38 countries and territories. Though it is not yet confirmed if Omicron would cause more severe Covid-19 conditions, it has been said the strain is more transmissible compared to Delta and previous strains as it carries many mutations, said Tran Dac Phu, a senior advisor at the Public Health Emergency Operations Center under the ministry. Therefore, it is necessary to stay alert because the highly contagious strain could overload the nation's healthcare system, he said. The ministry requested localities to keep strengthening Covid-19 prevention and control measures, … [Read more...] about Omicron risk ‘very high’: Health Ministry
