Each of the patients had originally tested positive for the COVID-19 between March 10 and March 12 and received treatment at Binh Thuan General Hospital throughout their recovery.
At present, each of the patients are in good health and are not displaying any symptoms of the COVID-19 such as a fever, a cough, or shortness of breath.
Following their recovery, the six cases will now be transferred to the isolation zone belonging to the COVID-19 Treatment Center in Binh Thuan province to undergo strict surveillance for the next 14 days.
