Vietnam confirms 115 local coronavirus infections in 24 hours

The Ministry of Health has announced 115 domestic coronovirus infections in Vietnam over the last 24 hours, almost one-third on Thursday morning.

Thirty-three domestic cases were registered on Thursday morning, including 22 in Da Nang alone, the health ministry said in a report.

Another 82 locally-transmitted infections had been recorded on Wednesday, according to the ministry’s data.

Vietnam has confirmed 644 local coronavirus infections in 26 province and cities since the fourth wave broke out on April 27, having spent about a month detecting no community transmission.

Hanoi is taking the lead with 166 cases, followed by Bac Ninh with 127, Da Nang with 102, Bac Giang with 83, Vinh Phuc with 75.

Ho Chi Minh City has recorded only one case in this round of infections.

The Southeast Asian country confirmed 106 community cases in the first wave from January 23 to April 16, 2020, 554 in the second from July 25 to December 1, 2020, and 910 in the third from January 28 to March 25, 2021.  

Vietnam has overall documented 3,658 imported and domestic coronavirus cases as of Thursday morning, with 2,636 recoveries and 35 deaths, according to the Ministry of Health.

The Southeast Asian nation has administered 942,030 out of its AstraZeneca 917,600 shots, secured via direct purchase or the COVAX vaccine-sharing scheme, since it rolled out mass vaccination on March 8.

Those vaccinated were medical staff and other frontline workers.

The government has said vaccine is in short supply so it is trying its best to procure more doses by negotiating with international partners.

Public health workers have collected 306,138 samples for COVID-19 tests since April 27, the government said in a post on its verified Facebook account on Thursday morning.

At the time of writing, 77,648 people are being quarantined after coming into close contact with infected patients or entering Vietnam from virus-hit regions.
