She advised Vietnamese citizens, especially students, to stay calm and strictly follow Switzerland’s disease prevention measures and recommendations.

The Vietnamese community in Switzerland, in turn, has stayed united and join hands in the battles against the pandemic of both Vietnam and Switzerland.

Meanwhile, Marcel Winder, Honorary President of the Czech Republic-Vietnam Friendship Association, recently thanked the Vietnamese community in the Czech Republic for their contributions in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since the first case was reported in the country on March 1, Vietnamese people have launched a campaign to sew face masks and raise funds to support local people, hospitals, and authorized offices.

For example, the Vietnamese community in Cheb has donated 700,000 Koruna (27,680 USD) to the city’s hospital and fire fighting force, while the community in Ustínad Labem has presented 300,000 Koruna to Masaryk Hospital to buy ventilators.
