HÀ NỘI — A total of 28 medical workers and 17 patients of the Hà Nội Kidney Hospital have been quarantined since Thursday after they were found to have had contact with Viet Nam's 254th COVID-19 patient.
The 254th patient is a 51-year-old Vietnamese man from Hà Nội’s Mê Linh District, who is a neighbour of the 243rd and 250th patients. He receives dialysis treatment at the Hà Nội Kidney Hospital.
The patient’s sample was taken on Thursday morning and was found to be positive with the SARS-CoV-2 virus on the same day.
The hospital has since been disinfected. — VNS
