Abstract: COVID-19 has significantly affected many economies throughout the world, but there are some brighter signs in Vietnam. Declared as a epidemic in early February in Vietnam, effective health policies and early action have mitigated the impact of COVID-19 in Vietnam and the country has maintained low numbers of cumulative cases and deaths compared to other comparators. From mid-April to early May, the Vietnamese government implemented lockdown and social distancing measures at the national and provincial levels. At the end of Q2, the Vietnamese economy was proving to be resilient, with GDP expected to grow in 2020 while the GDP of most other ASEAN economies are expected to contract. To monitor the social and economic effects on households amid the pandemic, the World Bank designed and conducted its COVID-19 High-Frequency Phone Surveys of Households in Vietnam. This monitoring data helps gather insights on household well-being as post-lockdown reopening unfolds, and to highlight the effects on the most vulnerable members of Vietnamese society. The first round of the Vietnam household high-frequency phone survey was conducted between June 5 to July 8, 2020. Over 6,000 households were contacted from all provinces in the country. This note provides a snapshot of results from the first of four rounds of high frequency surveys
