Trang, 23 years old, came to Manila late last year to work.

Half a month later, infections increased rapidly, forcing officials to impose a nationwide blockade to stop the spread of Covid-19.

Following daily information, Trang realized that the epidemic was becoming more and more complicated, while the medical infrastructure in Manila was not guaranteed, so she was quite worried.

Therefore, Trang agreed to stay in Manila and implement epidemic prevention measures.

At the dormitory, Trang shared a room with several other people.

When looking for information on how to avoid the epidemic for Vietnamese people in the Philippines, Trang joined a group on social networks, with about 4,000 members, of which about 1,600 people expressed their wish to return home to the Vietnamese Embassy in the Philippines.

Manila residents wear masks on buses on July 21.

In early June, the Philippines relaxed its blockade when the number of infections showed signs of decreasing, and Trang also returned to work.

On July 31, the Philippines recorded more than 4,000 infections in one day, the highest increase in Southeast Asia for the second consecutive day.

Some Vietnamese people in the Philippines said they are considering buying a commercial plane ticket from the Philippines to Cambodia, then returning to Vietnam by road, at a cost of about 100 million VND and 28 days of quarantine.

`I look forward to returning to Vietnam soon to get examined and treated for heart disease. The epidemic situation in Manila is serious so I don’t dare go to the hospital for examination and health monitoring,` Trang said.

Since April, Vietnamese authorities have brought more than 18,000 citizens from many parts of the world home to avoid the epidemic, including nearly 800 people from the Philippines.
