She tested positive for COVID-19 on May 17, then was taken to Đức Giang Hospital. 

On May 22 she was transferred to the National Hospital for Tropical Diseases and diagnosed with pneumonia caused by COVID-19. She suffered progressive respiratory failure, along with fungal infections.

She was put on a ventilator and given some other intensive treatment but did not respond well. She passed away on Saturday night.
