Reviewing the information on the media system, shows that the current situation of the Covid-19 pandemic is taking place very complicatedly in the world and also in Vietnam, countries that can produce their own Covid-19 vaccines, vaccines have been given to people with a high rate, but Covid-19 is still growing again with a very high incidence like the US, UK, Russia, China.... Four Southeast Asian countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar) have a very high number of people infected with Covid-19 and daily deaths, much more than Vietnam today. This shows them that the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic can still be long and extremely complicated, even after vaccination, because the virus is constantly mutating.

On a global scale, this must be considered a great war against the Covid-19 pandemic with an unprecedented scale in the history of mankind (most countries in the world have Covid-19 cases). Corona virus SARS-COV-2. It is not known where this virus was born, but it can be confirmed directly or indirectly that it is caused by humans, possibly from a laboratory leak or in the wild. In nature, humans have devastated, destroyed the environment on earth; wars with high-tech weapons, atomic bombs were used, atomic weapons tests, bio-chemical weapons continued; forest fires, pollution, environmental destruction causing climate change.... These factors have given rise to epidemics and diseases, including corona virus. After all, today's consequences are all man-made.

Humanity has experienced two world wars in the twentieth century. During the Second World War, the Allies were formed to defeat the common enemy, the Fascist faction. The corona virus caused a pandemic for the world, affecting all five continents. This can be considered as a new "World War", "Biological War", "Non-Traditional War", ... the war takes place between humans and viruses - invisible enemies, face mark. In this fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, there is no global connection, the common strength of all humanity has not been gathered, each country has to fight the epidemic in its own way, so it is difficult to be successful!

Vietnam took the problem seriously from the very beginning when the case was discovered. Vietnam has identified and announced "Fighting the epidemic like fighting the enemy" and is conducting a very urgent and drastic fight against the Covid-19 epidemic. The administrative apparatus for the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic was established from the central to local levels and agencies and departments, that is, the National Steering Committee for the prevention and control of Covid-19 and  local steering committees, steering committees of ministries, departments and branches. The implementation plans have been developed, the Politburo meets to discuss and approve, the Prime Minister directly directs and administers....

On March 30, 2020, General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong issued a call to compatriots, comrades and soldiers nationwide and our compatriots abroad to unite with one heart, unify the will and action, drastically and effectively implement the guidelines of the Party and State, the direction and administration of the Government and the Prime Minister to ensure victory over the Covid-19 pandemic. In the history of our country, since the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam, there have been many calls to fight against foreign invaders. This is the first time in the 21st century that the Head of the Party and State, General Secretary and State President Nguyen Phu Trong has issued a call to combat the Covid-19 pandemic. That is to show that our Party and State have launched the whole people to "fight the enemy".

We have won three Covid-19 outbreaks, which are very important victories. This fourth epidemic, with its new virus variant (Delta variant) broke out strongly, spreading very quickly and on a large scale in many countries, including countries that have achieved high vaccination rates. In Vietnam, many provinces and cities across the country, especially the number of infections and deaths has increased very quickly in Ho Chi Minh City and Binh Duong province. In the face of complicated developments of the Covid-19 epidemic in many localities across the country, on the evening of July 29, 2021, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong issued a call to send a call to compatriots and soldiers nationwide and our compatriots in the country abroad on pandemic prevention and control. This is the second call in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. Currently, the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic has entered a new phase, which has spread to the whole country. Faced with this situation, the Politburo headed by General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong directly directed the entire Party, people and army to wage the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, with the action plan being: "5K + VACCINE + ISOLATION" to have determination, specific implementation plan.
