HCMC – The Hanoi Department of Health today, May 13, issued a decision suspending the operations of the Thu Cuc International General Clinic, under the Thu Cuc Medical and Beauty Care JSC, located at 216 Tran Duy Hung in Cau Giay District, to verify and address issues related to its admission and treatment of a Covid-19 case reported on May 12.

Besides, the suspension was also aimed at ensuring the safety of Covid-19 infection prevention operations in line with the Ministry of Health's regulations, the local media reported.

The clinic will resume its medical checkup and treatment operations only once it gets permission from the municipal department.

On May 12, the Hanoi Department of Health reported two Covid-19 cases linked to Danang City, including a woman and her husband.

The woman on May 9 went to the Thu Cuc Clinic for a medical checkup after showing some suspected symptoms of Covid-19, but the clinic refused to admit her and advised her to go home.

Meanwhile, on May 12, the man also developed some symptoms of Covid-19, so the two visited the Viet Xo Friendship Hospital to have their samples tested. Their samples came back positive for Covid-19.
