>Vietnam doesn't mess around.

Indeed. Contact tracing & testing. Simple.

"Hŕ Nội authorities have traced more than 72,000 people who returned to the capital from Đŕ Nẵng since July 8. Nearly 50,000 of them have undergone rapid testing for COVID-19,"

Contact tracing is one of the key areas, sample form attached. These are also made public so individuals can see if they need testing

In fairness he never mentioned winning the jackpot.

How about odds of winning a million versus dead, I think thats a reasonable comparison.

In 25 years the UK Lotto has created 5,700 millionaires.

In 6 months covid has claimed 46,000 lives.

"The Vietnamese coastal city of Danang plans to test its entire population of 1.1 million people for coronavirus, the governing authorities said on Saturday, as 40 new cases linked to the tourist spot were reported across the country, taking total infections to 586, with three deaths."

And as if from nowhere 4 new cases pop up in Da Nang, coastal city roughly in the middle of Vietnam. The first community transmissions for 100 days.

The response has been swift, this is well worth a tread and is somewhat of a contrast with other countries (you know who you are).

"The interdisciplinary study of this phenomenon has made one thing clear: The failure of various groups to acknowledge the truth about, say, climate change, is not explained by a lack of information about the scientific consensus on the subject.

Instead, what strongly predicts denial of expertise on many controversial topics is simply one’s political persuasion."

I can't begin to tell you how bizarre that sounds.

How the virus won

It started small. A man near Seattle had a persistent cough. A woman in Chicago had a fever and shortness of breath.
