HCMC – A male nurse of the HCMC-based Trung Vuong Hospital has been found to be infected with Covid-19, a representative of the hospital said this afternoon, June 18.
The hospital discovered the nurse, who works at the hospital’s Department of Orthopedics, was infected with the disease after it performed a Covid-19 test for all of its employees.
The hospital reported the case to the HCMC Center for Disease Control and is discussing response measures, reported Tuoi Tre newspaper.
Earlier, a married couple went to the hospital on June 8 for a medical check-up. After they declared their health status, the medical workers suspected they might have been exposed to the coronavirus and decided to take them to a quarantine zone for a Covid-19 screening test.
Their results came out positive on June 9. They were sent to the Can Gio Covid-19 treatment hospital in Can Gio District.
In a related development, Tang Chi Thuong, deputy director of the HCMC Department of Health, said on June 17 that the department decided to convert the Trung Vuong Hospital into a Covid-19 treatment one.
