Domestic and international health specialists have attributed Vietnam’s low infections to the high ratio of coronavirus tests per confirmed cases. According to Our World in Data, the number of coronavirus tests per infected cases were 966.7 as of April 29.

So far, the number of people under quarantine reaches 25,361, including 373 at hospitals, 11,181 at concentrated centers and 13,807 at home and lodging facilities.
