The country reported 142,136 cases of the disease and increased to 4,355,314 the accumulated total of cases since the beginning of the pandemic.

The capital also reported an unprecedented number of infected people with 29,578 -almost one fifth of the national total- confirming itself as the epicenter of the current fourth wave of the disease.

The Health Ministry also reported 87 deaths, bringing the total to 40,813. More than 4,200 patients are clinically compromised.

Until the end of April last year, this was one of the countries that was dealing best with the disease (3,428 cases, 35 deaths), but first the irruption of the Delta variant of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, and since the end of December, the Omicron, pushed the statistics up to the current level.

Vietnam is focused on achieving herd immunity through vaccination. So far, 80 million of its 98 million people have completed the two-dose immunization schedule and just over 41 percent have completed a third booster.

Health authorities are considering declaring Covid-19 an endemic disease, because although the number of cases is high, the number of hospitalizations and deaths is quite low.
