The three were recently released, including cases No. 344, No. 346, and No. 348, in addition to one six-years-old boy, with many Vietnamese citizens being repatriated from Sweden and Finland. Once the group arrived at Noi Bai International Airport, many tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus on June 19.
Elsewhere, the country’s other two COVID-19 patients, No. 351 and No. 352, returned from Kuwait on flight KU1513 and tested for the virus on June 24.
The entire group was immediately placed into quarantine upon arrival.
Members of the group had originally tested negative for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the COVID-19 disease, before later being re-discharged and formally discharged from the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases in Hanoi.
Each of the cases now remains in a stable health condition, therefore displaying no symptoms of the virus, such as a fever, a cough, or shortness of breath.
Each of the five patients will now be placed into isolation in order to undergo a mandatory 14-day observation period in an attempt to ensure that there is no possibility of the virus reoccurring or being transmitted among the wider community.
As of June 29, the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases in Hanoi had given treatment to 182 COVID-19 patients, including 18 foreigners. Furthermore, 176 patients have gone on to make a full recovery, with the remaining six currently undergoing treatment.
Vietnam has also gone over 74 consecutive days without any locally transmitted COVID-19 cases.
Most notably, as many as 335 individuals out of the nation’s total of 355 COVID-19 cases have since gone on to make a full recovery from the virus, equal to 94.4% of all patients, with no deaths recorded as a result of the virus so far.
