Following the release of the video featuring Dung, Ha Duc Chinh made an appearance in a clip released by the AFC on April 19, advising people to, “Be healthy and united to push back the disease.”

The SHB Da Nang FC forward is joined in the video by two other notable figures from Asian football, staring alongside Ali Mabkhout of the United Arab Emirates and Maria Manda of Bangladesh.

The release of the two clips featuring Vietnamese footballers comes after both Hanoi FC midfielder Nguyen Quang Hai and Ho Chi Minh City FC forward Nguyen Cong Phuong produced videos for the #BreakTheChain campaign, in which the pair call on people to follow guidelines set by health professionals, as well as remaining patient and united in the fight against the Covid-19.
