The 64-year-old man, known as patient No.251, had perished in the northern province of Ha Nam.

He first tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 on April 7 and was treated at the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases in Ha Noi until April 17 when he was discharged.

He tested negative four times before being transferred to Ha Nam General Hospital for continued treatment of his underlying conditions.

The patient was first admitted to his local hospital for treatment for liver cirrhosis, exhaustion and severe gout on March 20.

After the patient died, Ha Nam General Hospital conducted a SARS-CoV-2 test that returned negative. The man also did not have any symptoms of lung damage caused by COVID-19.

The steering committee met earlier on May 4 and determined the man had not died due to contracted the coronavirus.

To date, Vietnam has reported 271 infections and no deaths.
