Under the directions of the Government and the consistent efforts of all levels, sectors and communities, Vietnam has well controlled the Covid-19 disease. Up to now, Vietnam successfully cured 13/16 cases of infection. The remaining 3 cases are showing positive signs. Currently, Vietnam's Covid-19 cure rate is among the highest in the world. The S-shaped country is making efforts to control the disease and hope to stop it soon.

Mr. Kunio Umeda said the situation of the Covid-19 disease was the current top concern of the Embassy of Japan. He once again affirmed that he would provide relevant information on the Covid-19 disease in Vietnam to Japanese authorities, the press, businesses and the public to understand the current situation in Vietnam that the country is still safe for tourists.

Japan has always been one of the most important markets for Vietnam's tourism. Mr. Nguyen Trung Khanh hoped that the tourism cooperation between Vietnam and Japan would continue to be strengthened to increase the number of tourists exchanging between the two countries.
