HÀ NỘI — Not a single new case of COVID-19 was recorded in Việt Nam on Tuesday, marking three days straight without any community transmissions.

The National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control said both Tuesday morning and evening that no new cases have been detected.

The news came as 28 people were given the all-clear after beating coronavirus. They will all continue quarantine for a 14-day period.

Of the 28 recoveries, five are from Đà Nẵng Lung Hospital, three from the National Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Đông Anh District, two from Quảng Trị Tuberculous and Lung Hospital, seven from Quảng Nam General Hospital, three from Hải Dương Hospital for Tropical Diseases and eight from Hoà Vang Health Centre.

Since the first case was detected back in January, 1,044 people have tested positive for COVID-19 but a total of 735 people have made a full recovery after treatment.

More than 55,000 people remain in quarantine at medical facilities and their homes.

To date, there have been 34 COVID-19-related fatalities, all of whom had serious underlying medical conditions. — VNS
