ĐÀ NẴNG — A 57-year-old man in Liên Chiểu District, Đà Nẵng, tested positive for COVID-19 at a local hospital yesterday.
His samples are being tested again at Nha Trang’s Pasteur Institute for confirmation.
He had a high fever and went for a check-up at the Đà Nẵng C Hospital at 8.25am on July 20. After being suspected of having the SARS-CoV-2 virus, his samples were tested and returned positive twice.
More than 50 people who were in contact with him have been quarantined.
In the past month, he hadn't travelled out of town and just had contact with his neighbours.
The Đà Nẵng Center for Disease Control and Prevention took samples from 102 people thought to have been in contact with the man and all of them tested negative.
Local authorities and health officials are investigating the case to identify the source of the transmission. — VNS
