According to the National Steering Committee on COVID-19 Prevention and Control, all the latest patients returned from Europe on flight VN2 on June 6 and placed into isolation as soon as they landed in Vietnam, posing no risk of spreading the virus to the local community.

As many as 326 (93.4%) out of total 349 cases have been discharged from hospital, and there has been no fatality so far. Among the remaining 23 patients in treatment, four tested positive at least twice.

At present, 10,500 people are being kept in quarantine for health monitoring, including 162 at hospitals, 9,387 in other isolation facilities and 951 at home and places of residence.

The nation’s most critical British pilot patient known as patient 91 is making remarkable recovery after developing other complications despite being cured from the virus. He is able to breathe on his own, and there is no need for a lung transplant as earlier planned.

The coronavirus pandemic has hit over 210 countries and territories across the globe, with more than 8.7 million infections and 461,760 deaths.
