HÀ NỘI — Ten COVID-19 patients, including a one-year-old baby girl, have made a full recovery in Đà Nẵng City along with two others in the central Quảng Nam Province.
The total number of people successfully treated for coronavirus now stands at 421.
The baby was among ten patients released Thursday morning from Hòa Vang Field Hospital in the central city.
Hòa Vang Medical Centre director Nguyễn Đại Vĩnh said all will continue isolation and monitoring for the next 14 days.
Deputy Minister of Health Nguyễn Trường Sơn praised the work of medical staff in the region and said the recoveries were a good sign showing that the country is heading in the right direction.
He said: “The remaining patients will continue to be provided with the best medical services and appropriate treatment plans.”
Sơn said that this initial achievement was thanks to the great support from leading experts in resuscitation, pathology, cardiology, and artificial kidneys fields to support hospitals in Đà Nẵng City, especially the Hòa Vang Field Hospital and Đà Nẵng Lung Hospital.
In addition, Đà Nẵng also received more than 100 physicians from Phú Thọ, Bình Định and Huế provinces to coordinate in treatment and resuscitation activities.
