Recognized by WHO as one of the most dangerous pandemics ever for all human beings, COVID-19 has swept across virtually every country in the world and left many traumatic consequences – with the series of frightening and confusing numbers about the number of cases as well as the number of businesses that were forced to shut down because of it.
However, the pandemic situation is just ‘quiet’ and somewhat more positive in Vietnam – a ‘small but mighty’ country in Asia, thanks to the government’s timely intervention and prevention policy. Therefore, the overall picture of society and the economy in Vietnam is also more prosperous than some other countries in the same region or around the world. Thus, how is the outlook of Vietnam after CODID-19 for Software Outsourcing especially? Let’s take a look at some of the brilliant information behind the article to get as specific as possible.
Overview of the pandemic in the world & Vietnam
From the very first days of 2020 – or according to some other sources: from the end of 2019, the global epidemic of COVID-19 with a new, extremely dangerous coronavirus has emerged and swept across virtually all countries in the world. Whether it is a small population country or a giant country with an extremely promising economy, the pandemic is still unresponsive. Even today, it is still growing and becoming unpredictable with the appearance of new variations.
Till now, they have recorded 80 million cases of infection, with a number of nearly two million. In terms of population ratios, Belgium is the most severely affected country; with 161 out of 100 thousand people passing away.
It is followed by Italy with 114 people and Peru with 113 people. In terms of regions, Europe is the most seriously affected place in the world. It has more than 21.72 million people infected with COVID-19, of which more than 502 thousand deaths. Germany has recorded the highest number of deaths due to coronavirus in a day.
Particularly in Vietnam, the government quickly enacted measures that other countries would take months to implement, adopting a travel restriction policy, and closely monitoring individual citizens through decentralized management to the ward/commune and neighborhood levels, ultimately closing the border with China and intensifying border health checks and other vulnerable areas.
To talk about the situation that the pandemic has been thoroughly controlled in Vietnam, Professor Guy Thwaites, Director of the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU) in Ho Chi Minh City, said: “It’s very, very act quickly in seemingly extreme ways at the time but later proved to be quite plausible work with the government on infectious disease programs.”
The danger of the COVID-19 pandemic was identified as its rapid spread and the rate of its weakened immune system in the human body. Not only that but coronavirus is also found lurking in the body of animals living in nature and does not have any specific symptoms as in humans. However, most of all, public health remains a top concern worldwide. We – within the naked eyes, it is impossible to identify specifically who is sick or contains the coronavirus or not. We can only protect ourselves by wearing a mask at all times.
Preliminary information about the miraculous recovery of Vietnam’s economy
Like many other countries in the world, right from the onset of the pandemic, COVID-19 has also disturbed the economic situation of Vietnam, especially when the guidelines to restrict movement between countries/regions caused problems for the tourism and aviation industries that suffered many losses. This year, Vietnam’s GDP grew only 1.81 percent in the first half of the year compared with the previous forecast COVID of 6.8 percent in 2020.
However, thanks to effective anti-epidemic actions from government leaders, Vietnam has become one of the proactive countries with the most successful epidemic prevention and control, with a social isolation time of just 22 days in April – much shorter than other struggling countries around the world; since then, creating a premise for the economy to return to the track and develop the ‘speed’. Retail sales, imports, and industrial production all increased year-on-year in June, outperforming most countries with the most economic recovery prospects in the region, according to financial services firm UBS.
In particular, in the midst of the current pandemic, the need to develop an online platform is essential and useful for businesses that are in the need of maintaining interaction and interest from customers. Therefore, it can be said that the technology industry in the world in general and in Vietnam, in particular, is extremely promising and is at a high threshold of meeting the needs of customers from all over the world. With the great strength in the epidemic situation that is strictly controlled, stable people’s health & spirit, and the young & dynamic Developers force, Vietnam has always been an ideal destination for software development projects for a wide range of customers from all continents.
