Vietnam COVID Diaries Vlog #16-War Sites/Stories

It's been several weeks since my last COVID Diaries vlog. I honestly thought I was finished with the series but with the resurgence of the virus in Da Nang I've decided to continue with more videos. We have been impacted but only slightly overall here in Ho Chi Minh,(Saigon). Bars, nightclubs/discos, have been temporarily closed. Mask wearing in public is now mandatory and is being enforced with fines, up to $13USD. As I stated in the video I have been wearing a mask in public since we were first asked to wear them in public. I had never heard it was OK not to wear them. The situation is more serious in Da Nang with approximately 300 new cases detected since July 25th and for the first time, fatalities, as of this posting 18, all with underlying conditions. Thousands of volunteers, military personal, and healthcare workers have been deployed to Da Nang to fight the pandemic. I hope you are staying safe wherever you are, practising social distancing, avoiding crowds if possible, and wearing a mask in public to help stop the spread of the virus. It appears it may be some time before we are all through with this. Thanks so much for your support!
