From virtual trainings that have reached thousands of hospital workers, to genetic sequencing technology that allows Vietnam to track variants of the virus, to equipment for testing and for vaccine storage, to life-saving equipment, such as ventilators, oxygen concentrators, and liquid-oxygen tanks for patients in need.
