The hospital concluded the man was infected with the variant of concern on December 21, using Oxford Nanopore Technologies’ sequencer.
Following the discharge, the hospital will continue to coordinate with the recovered patient’s family to monitor and manage his health at home, ensuring the safety of the community.
The hospital calls on people to strictly follow pandemic prevention and control regulations, especially to protect high-risk groups such as the elderly or people with underlying health conditions.
20 Omicron cases confirmed to date in Vietnam (all imported) have reportedly been asymptomatic or mild cases. The latest five discovered in Ho Chi Minh City have tested negative after five days or a week after testing positive for the new variant, according to NDO.
