Included in the trio is case No. 19, a 64-years-old female patient who had been in a critical condition after contracting the virus from her nephew, patient No. 17.

She was originally hospitalised on March 7 and has since been on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, a life support machine. Despite being optimistic throughout her treatment, doctors were still pleasantly surprised that the patient has gone on to make a full recovery.

At present, patient No. 19 has tested negative for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the COVID-19 six consecutive times.

The second case of recovery involves patient No. 52. The 24-year-old had been returning from the UK on March 9 and tested positive for the COVID-19 four days later.

She went on to be tested for the virus 13 times before being discharged from hospital on April 16. However, five days later she tested positive once again for the COVID-19.

The other patient to make a recovery is case No. 324, an 18 year old who had been a passenger on flight VN001 from Washington D.C, the United States, to Noi Bai International Airport, Hanoi, on May 16.

All three patients are set to receive a successful discharge from the National Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Hanoi on May 27 after making a full recovery and going on to record several consecutive negative tests for the COVID-19.

Indeed, the entire group is currently enjoying stable health conditions, whilst none of them have been displaying any symptoms of the virus such as a fever, a cough, or shortness of breath. 

Following their discharge from hospital, each individual is now set to be placed into isolation in order to undergo a mandatory 14-day observation period in an effort to ensure that there is no possibility of the virus reoccurring.

Currently, the country has been through 40 days with no new locally-transmitted COVID-19 infections. Despite the total number of positive cases rising to 326, the number of recoveries has also climbed to 275.
