Therefore, the areas, where the two patients live, were locked down for 14 days.
According to a report by the city’s health department, the two patients tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 and have been under active treatment now.
A total of 2,557 samples of people, who directly contacted the two patients, already tested negative three times, the report said.
On Monday afternoon, the city administration also removed the lockdown of the city’s Transport Hospital, where the two patients worked.
Speaking at the announcement of the end of the lockdown, Trần Việt Tuấn, Lê Chân District’s Party Committee Secretary, said people in the area would return to normal life after the lockdown ended.
However, local people were told to seriously implement the Ministry of Health’s 5K message: Khẩu trang (face mask) – Khử khuẩn (disinfection) – Khoảng cách (distance) – Không tụ tập (no gathering) – Khai báo y tế (health declaration), he said. — VNS
