The 62-year-old patient, who is a resident of Binh Han ward, was originally admitted to Hai Duong Hospital for Tropical Diseases for treatment on March 28.
After recording several negative tests for the SARS-CoV-2 virus on April 11, April 14, and April 16, she was announced to have made a full recovery from the virus, although she will now undergo a 21-day isolation period at home.
According to doctor Nguyen The Anh, deputy director of Hai Duong Hospital for Tropical Diseases, the patient suffers from illnesses such as type two diabetes, causing her to spend a total of 51 days at hospital receiving treatment.
The northern province of Hai Duong represents the country’s largest COVID-19 hotspot and has detected a total of 726 positive COVID-19 cases so far. At present, the locality has gone through three consecutive weeks without any fresh locally-transmitted COVID-19 cases.
As of April 16, there are no COVID-19 patients within the locality, whilst all F1 and F2 cases have also completed their isolation period. Since the beginning of the year as many as 746,104 samples have been taken as part of testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
The province is currently implementing its COVID-19 vaccination campaign and is using the AstraZeneca vaccine to do so. The Ministry of Health has therefore allocated 33,000 vaccine doses to the locality and is set to distribute an additional 10,700 doses over the coming month.
