After 99 Days Of Success, Virus Returns To Haunt Vietnam-The Associated Press

For 99 days, Vietnam seemed to have defeated the coronavirus. There wasn’t a single reported case of community transmission. Not a single death. A handful of cases were caught and isolated at the border, but otherwise people were returning to their normal lives. The country of 96 million people was hailed globally as a standout success. But then a week ago, an outbreak began that has now grown to 43 cases in six parts of the country.
