HÀ NỘI — Among 149 COVID-19 patients currently under treatment in hospitals across Việt Nam, 31 have tested negative for SARS-Cov-2 virus more than twice, the Ministry of Health announced on Tuesday morning.
It is expected that two patients – the 49th patient treated in Huế Central Hospital and the 54th patient in HCM City’s Cần Giờ Hospital – will soon be transferred to other hospitals later Tuesday as they have recovered.
Lương Ngọc Khuê, head of the ministry's Department of Medical Examination and Treatment, said that up to Tuesday morning, the four COVID-19 patients with the most complications at the Central Tropical Diseases Hospital in Hà Nội were progressing well, despite them still being on ventilators. There are 53 COVID-19 patients being treated at the hospital now.
Four healthcare workers including two doctors of the hospital and two nurses of Bạch Mai Hospital were also in stable condition.
On Tuesday morning, the latest patient to test positive for COVID-19 in Việt Nam was a 10-year-old boy, which brought the total number of cases in the country to 204.
As of Monday, 16 people infected with the disease from January 23rd to February 13th and 39 other patients since March 6th have made full recoveries. — VNS
