Midday local COVID-19 infection tally stands at 86

VOV.VN - The infection tally in the nation’s latest novel coronavirus (COVID-19) wave has increased to 6,536 following the Health Ministry confirming 86 more fresh community transmissions at midday on June 10.

The 86 cases recorded domestically include Bac Giang (52), Ho Chi Minh City (15), Bac Ninh (10), Hanoi (4), Ha Tinh (2), and one each in Lang Son , Hai Duong, and Long An.

During the noon time, the country also confirmed two more imported cases in the two southern provinces of Kien Giang and An Giang, raising the total imported infections to 1,617.

Furthermore, the number of recoveries is now at 3,636, while fatalities related to COVID-19 remains at 55.

Fortunately, a total of 16 pandemic-hit localities have now gone 14 days without new infections.

The same day the Mekong delta province of Hau Giang launched its second phase of its COVID-19 vaccination campaign.

The inoculation drive is expected to run until July 23, with 14,400 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine being distributed among 10 separate vaccination points throughout the province, including seven health centres in districts and towns, along with three hospitals.

Moreover, the Ho Chi Minh City health department has requested that local hospitals perform RT-PCR tests for COVID-19 on any visitors with symptoms such as a fever, a cough, or changes to their sense of smell.

The move is occurring due to the southern metropolis seeing a growing number of fresh cases and individuals requiring centralised quarantining which is proving to be a burden for the healthcare system and threatening to overload the capacity of quarantine zones.

During the latest COVID-19 wave which began on April 27, Vietnam has registered over 6,530 infections across 39 cities and provinces, making it the country's most challenging outbreak yet.
