 HÀ NỘI — Nine more COVID-19 patients have made a full recovery and were released from three treatment facilities across the country on Monday.

The recovered patients have lifted the country’s total cases being given the all-clear to 316, making up nearly 95 per cent of the total COVID-19 patients in Việt Nam.

They include eight Vietnamese patients, six at the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases in Hà Nội who returned to Việt Nam from Russia, two at the Thái Bình General Hospital, along with one 37-year-old British man (Patient No.271) at the Củ Chi Field Hospital in HCM City.

All of the patients have tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 twice. Currently, they have no fever, are not coughing, have well-ventilated lungs and are in stable conditions.

They will continue to be isolated and monitored for the next 14 days, according to the Subcommittee of Treatment of the National Steering Committee on COVID-19 Prevention and Control.

To date, 49 foreign patients with COVID-19 have recovered and have been released from treatment facilities across the country.  Patient 91, UK pilot Stephen Cameron, is the last foreign patient who is still in critical condition and is being treated at the Chợ Rẫy General Hospital in HCM City, following successful COVID-19 treatment at HCM City Hospital for Tropical Diseases.

Health officials say his condition has improved and he has been taken off life support last Wednesday.

On Monday morning, Việt Nam reported two new imported COVID-19 cases, bringing the country total cases to 331. The country also has reported no new infections among the community for the last 53 days and no fatalities have been reported. — VNS
