Vietnam Discover the Most Effective Corona Virus Detection Tool

Vietnam's Ministry of Health licenses test kits that help diagnose the corona virus or (Covid-19) in just one hour. This tool was developed by Vietnam Military Medical University and Viet A Corporation technology company.The Covid-19 test kit can detect corona viruses originating from respiratory tract droplets and blood samples.


Do Quyet, director of the Vietnam Military Medical University, said the test kits met World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) standards.

The National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology of Vietnam has also tested the test equipment independently, by testing it on five different devices for various samples of a disease or virus, and finding that the results are accurate in each sample.

The National Council for Science and Technology Policy, which advises the government on science and technology policies, also recommends that the Ministry of Health use these test kits.

Phan Quoc Viet, CEO of Viet A, said his company can make 10,000 kits a day, and triple the capacity if needed.

Authorities say this capacity will enable Vietnam to not only meet domestic demand but also export.

China, the US, Japan, Germany, and Vietnam are the only countries that make Covid-19 test kits.

Vietnam has recorded 57 cases of Covid-19 so far, and 16 of them were discharged last week.

The Covid-19 outbreak so far has spread to 157 countries and territories, with the death toll increasing to more than 6,500.
