Da Nang hotspot records spike of 45 coronavirus cases over 12 hours

The total tally of coronavirus patients in Vietnam rapidly jumped to 509 after the Ministry of Health on July 31 morning confirmed an additional 45 new locally-transmitted infections in the central city of Da Nang during the past 12 hours.

The latest patients aged 27-87 are all related to different medical facilities in Da Nang, including 33 at Da Nang Hospital, 4 at Da Nang Lung Hospital, 2 at Da Nang Cancer Hospital, 4 cases at a hotel that isolates artificial kidney patients from Da Nang Hospital, and 2 at Cam Le Medical Center.

Through epidemiological investigation and surveillance, the Da Nang Center for Disease Control took samples of isolated cases at health facilities, and their test results indicated that 45 cases came back positive for SARS-CoV-2 virus on July 30.

Among the nation’s total 509 confirmed patients, 276 are imported cases who were immediately isolated upon arrival. Notably, the number of locally transmitted infections since July 25 increased to 93, including 79 in Da Nang, eight in Quang Nam, two in Hanoi, two in Ho Chi Minh City, one in Quang Ngai and one in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak.

More than 53,767 people who had close contact with COVID-19 patients or returning from pandemic-hit regions are in quarantine nationwide, including 472 at hospitals and the remainders at concentrated facilities and their accommodations.

There has been a total of 509 coronavirus cases recorded nationally as of 6 am on July 31 morning, with 365 (79.5%) making a full recovery, whilst the remaining cases are undergoing treatment  at medical facilities throughout the nation. 18 patients have so far tested negative for the virus at least once.

The Ministry of Health is continuing to closely monitor the disease situation across the country, especially the outbreak in the central city of Da Nang- the locality has recorded the highest number of community-associated cases since July 25, while intensifying medical isolation, and testing suspected cases as well as returnees from Da Nang.

Meanwhile, amid the increasingly complicated developments of the pandemic, Hanoi Mayor Nguyen Duc Chung has ordered the mass testing of all local residents, who have returned from the central city of Da Nang after July 16 as a means of preventing the spread of the virus to the wider community.

The testing for returnees from the central city, home to the latest coronavirus outbreak, is set for completion by August 2. 

Two major cities- Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City- have also suspended events attracting crowds and gatherings at bars, dance clubs, fairs, and exhibitions as the COVID-19 numbers are on the rise in the community.
