US President Donald Trump on March 13 declared a national emergency over the coronavirus outbreak.

As soon as the disease broke out in China's Wuhan city and then spread to many countries around the world, including the US, the Embassy of Vietnam in the country has promptly mapped out plans and set up emergency response teams to provide the latest information from the host's authorities and Vietnam to the community.

The embassy also maintained its hotlines to receive feedback from Vietnamese citizens in case of emergency and also prepared plans to bring them back home if necessary.

Vietnamese are advised to limit traveling and going to crowded places.

Many overseas Vietnamese have promoted solidarity and mutual support via initiatives to provide medical consultancies for cases having coronavirus-like symptoms and calling for an end to the spread of fake news about Vietnamese infection cases.

The associations of Vietnamese students in some US states have carried out a number of activities to provide necessary information about the disease and support students when they face difficulties due to school closures.

Nguyen Duc Tai, Chairman of the Vietnamese students association in Boston, one of the regions with the largest number of Vietnamese students said that since the epidemic was spread to some US states, the association has maintained close contact with the Vietnamese Embassy in the US to update the latest and accurate information as well as shared useful information on Facebook to raise public awareness of virus prevention.

To date, the US has recorded over 2,200 COVID-19 cases, with 50 fatalities.
