HÀ NỘI — Four more deaths related to COVID-19 were announced by health authorities Monday morning, including two people in their forties.

A 44-year-old man from Đồng Tháp was being treated for cancer and cirrhosis of the liver while a 48-year-old woman, from the same area, was suffering from coronary heart disease and stage five chronic kidney failure prior to her COVID diagnosis.
The third victim from Đồng Tháp was a 74-year-old man, suffering from hypertension, type two diabetes, and stage two chronic kidney disease. He had also previously undergone a coronary bypass.
All three died last Thursday.

Each cause of death was recorded as pneumonia in SARS-CoV-2 patients with underlying health issues.
