2 Vietnamese Pray For Good Health
Vietnam has over 22,000 people in government-run Covid-19 quarantine facilities, and over 30,000 in home quarantine. A woman in a quarantine camp described sleeping on a bamboo mat on a bed and getting toiletries and three meals a day, but is happy with the conditions. Before returning home to Vietnam from the UK last week, Phuong Chinh already knew she would be sent to a government-run mandatory coronavirus quarantine camp. She flinched at the idea at first, but decided it was safer to be back home. “I think staying in Britain is not safe because the government there does not have any clear measures when it comes to disease prevention or treating the infected,” said 24-year-old Chinh, a master’s student in marketing in London. Chinh also faced racial discrimination in the UK, saying people pointed at her and called her “corona” because she was Asian.
