Daily COVID-19 tally climbs to 7,882, including nearly 6,000 in HCM City

VOV.VN - A further 5,174 COVID-19 infections, including 19 imported cases, were confirmed by the Ministry of Health on the evening of July 26 to increase the daily infection count to 7,882.

Among the overall figure regarding local infections, Ho Chi Minh City took the top spot with 5,997 cases, Binh Duong (733), Dong Nai 259), Tien Giang (201), and Dong Thap (135).

Hanoi led the way in term of two-digit infections recorded in the day at 81, followed by Da Nang with 61, Vinh Long with 49, Binh Thuan with 48, Phu Yen with 46, Can Tho with 43, Ben Tre with 37, and Dak Lak with 29.

The 14 remaining localities reported single-digit local infections.

887 out of 7,859 local cases in total confirmed nationwide, are detected among the community.

As of 6 p.m. on July 26, the overall number of domestically-transmitted infections stood at 104,147 and imported cases totaled 2,201. The caseload since the beginning of the fourth wave of COVID-19 outbreaks which hit the country three months ago amounts to 102,577.

Furthermore, July 22 also saw a record figure of COVID-19 patients being discharged from hospital at 2,006, pushing the total number of recoveries to 21,344.

As many as 126 patients are currently receiving treatment in intensive care units, with 15 others undergoing treatment through extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).

At present, seven localities have now gone two weeks without any new local infections among the local community.

Moreover, the pandemic situation is going in an increasingly-complicated direction in major cities such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

This comes after Hanoi put the Hanoi Lung Hospital into lockdown on the night of July 25 after at least nine staff, patients, and their relatives tested positive for COVID-19.

Hanoi's Center for Disease Control confirmed 14 more active COVID-19 cases at the hospital on the morning of July 26, thereby raising the cluster tally to 29.

At present, Ho Chi Minh City is continuing to impose stricter pandemic measures, with all supermarkets based in the southern city being forced to close at 5 p.m. from July 26 in order to comply with the suspension of night-time activities amid the ongoing COVID-19 fight.

The southern metropolis has also banned people from leaving their homes except for emergencies after 6 p.m.

This is part of the latest efforts to slow the spread of the fourth wave of COVID-19, in which over 68,000 cases have been documented in the city.
