All actual information about COVID-19 (prevention, statistics, symptoms and more) you can find on WHO website and in Google feed.

2019 divided the history of most countries into «before» and «after». We are talking about a pandemic that has swept the whole world. The SARS-CoV-2 virus was first identified among residents of Hubei province (China). In just a few months, a disease called Covid-19 has spread to the inhabitants of the entire planet. Germany and Vietnam were not an exception.

Why is covid so dangerous? Regardless of the level of development of a particular state, medical care and other factors, millions of people have become victims of the coronavirus. According to the latest data, this figure is 185 029 953 people, among the total — 4 000 929 deaths. The main symptoms of the disease are: shortness of breath, high fever, dry cough, loss of taste and smell. The world’s leading countries have developed or are working on the production of their own vaccines that protect against COVID-19. Naturally, vaccination is not a 100% guarantee of protection against coronavirus, however, when infected, the disease is transferred much easier.

According to current data (statistics for Thursday, 8 July 2021), the number of cases in Vietnam is 23 385 people, total deaths are 102, and 14 726 are sick right now. Such statistics forced the government of the state of Vietnam to impose certain restrictions on flights and border crossing.

Current statistics on the restrictions on entry to Vietnam:

  • Open to citizens: Yes
  • Open to s: Partially

  2. Availability of the test: Upon arrival a health declaration is required

All countries are divided into 3 main categories by the Ministry of Health:

  • «Green» (low rate of spread of coronavirus)
  • «Orange» (average rate of spread of coronavirus)
  • «Red» (high rate of spread of coronavirus)

In this regard, the government acts in accordance with the recommendations of the World Health Association. The distribution of states into separate categories is updated regularly. At the moment, Germany ranks among the states of the «Orange» category.

The main reasons for the introduction of new restrictions are coronavirus mutations, an increase in the number of cases, and insufficient vaccination rates.
