Vietnam controls autochthonous Covid-19 cases
Hanoi, Oct 25 (Prensa Latina) Exactly three months after the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak that almost tripled the number of Covid-19 patients, Vietnam absolutely controls autochthonous infections and the country has just accumulated imported Covid-19 cases for 53 days. Occurring on July 25 in Da Nang downtown, the second wave of the novel coronavirus caused the first death six days later and the death toll increased to 35 on September 3.
But since then, there has been no other, with which Vietnam also celebrates on Sunday 52 days counting out no deaths from Covid-19.
So far, the country has reported 1,160 Covid-19 cases, of which 691 are directly or indirectly related to the outbreak in Da Nang.
The bulk of the active cases are associated with Vietnamese repatriated from other countries where they caught the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, and foreign technicians who - already at this stage of the 'new normality' - were authorized to return to fulfill contracts in projects that are vital to the national economy.
Meanwhile, the figure of recoveries rises to a 1,051. Among those still admitted to hospitals, none is at risk of death, three tested twice negative for carrying the SARS-CoV-2 and 16 tested negative three times, so the total of recoveries should increase next week.
