The committee’s treatment subcommittee reported that 267 out of the total 325 patients have given all-clear from the disease, and with zero death.

It added that 185 cases were imported and quarantined upon arrival in Vietnam, so there is no risk of community transmission.

At present, 58 patients are being treated at centrally and locally run medical facilities, of the seven tested negatives for SARS-CoV-2 once, and four for the virus twice or more.

As many as 15,412 people having close contact with patients or entering Vietnam from pandemic-hit regions have been quarantined at hospitals, concentrated quarantine establishments, and home.
