VOV.VN - The Ministry of Health reported the detection of 3,227 additional COVID-19 cases on the evening of July 22, thereby raising the daily infection count to 6,194.

In terms of the total figure regarding local infections, Ho Chi Minh City led the way with 4,218 cases, followed by Binh Duong (679), Long An (432), Dong Nai (210), and Dong Thap (117).

Localities registered two-digit infections included Tien Giang (68), Ben Tre (65), Ba Ria - Vung Tau (63), Hanoi (50), Can Tho (45), Vinh Long (38), Da Nang (27), Binh Thuan (26) , Phu Yen (21), An Giang (15), Hau Giang (12), and Kien Giang (11).

The remaining localities all recorded single-digit cases of community infections.

Following the addition of the latest infections, a total of 72,242 domestic and 2,129 imported cases have been recorded so far nationwide, including 70,672 detected during the ongoing COVID-19 wave which started nearly roughly three months ago.

Furthermore, July 22 also saw a record figure of coronavirus COVID-19 patients discharged from hospital at 1,450, thereby pushing the total number of recoveries to 13,421.

As many as 129 patients are being currently being treated in intensive care units, with 18 others being receiving treatment with ECMO.

Amid an increasingly complicated situation regarding the pandemic, Hanoi has started quarantining all people returning from pandemic-hit areas, putting them in dedicated facilities from July 22. This is part of  additional efforts to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the latest dispatch issued by Chu Ngoc Anh.

The municipal leader requested local authorities to strengthen surveillance in the community, whilst closely managing and supervising those returning from other provinces and cities to minimize the potential risk of transmission from pandemic-hit areas.

The Centres for Disease Control, and medical facilities based in the city have therefore been urged to quickly take samples for testing all case with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and shortness of breath.

Hanoi is currently witnessing a growing number of infections in recent times, with more than 800 positive coronavirus COVID-19 cases being recorded during the ongoing wave of COVID-19 outbreaks.
