The boy, who lives in Hanoi, returned to Noi Bai International Airport from Europe on June 6 together with his parents and twin brother.
The four were isolated at an concentrated quarantine facility of a vocational school in Hanoi’s Nam Tu Liem district.
After they were confirmed to carry the virus on June 19, they were all transferred to Hanoi’s Hospital of Tropical Diseases for medical surveillance and treatment.
They were said to respond well to the treatment, and all family members, except for the boy, were discharged from hospital in late June and early July.
During his stay at the hospital, the boy had not shown any clinical signs of virus symptoms. He had tested negative at least twice, meeting the criteria to be discharged from hospital.
The boy will be in quarantine at the hospital for another 14 days according to regulations before returning to his family.
Currently, 21 COVID-19 patients are being treated at hospitals across the country.
