HÀ NỘI — For the fourth day running, not a single new case of COVID-19 has been detected in Việt Nam.
The total amount of people who have contracted the disease since the very first case in mid-January remains at 268.
Of those, 202 have made a full recovery and have been given the all-clear.
Although one of those cases, a 44-year-old woman from Hà Nội, has tested positive for a second time. She is currently being treated at the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases.
Authorities are tracking and tracing people she came in close contact with after she was previously discharged.
Out of the total amount of cases detected so far, 160 are imported from another country, either carried through a foreigner visiting Việt Nam, or a Vietnamese national returning home.
The remaining 108 cases are all locally transmitted.
There are currently 66 people being treated in hospitals for coronavirus, mostly in Hà Nội.
Twenty of those have tested negative at least once.
As of Monday, nearly 63,000 people are being quarantined nationwide – at hospitals, concentrated quarantine camps, or in home isolation.
Globally, more than 2.4 million cases of COVID-19 were reported with 624,713 patients given all clear. — VNS
