Hanoi, May 31 (Prensa Latina) Vietnam is now 45 days free of indigenous cases of Covid-19 and remains one of the few countries that, despite reporting more than 300 sick people, is free of deaths. The native infections have been absolutely cut off since April 16, because all the new cases (188) are Vietnamese repatriated from other nations where the epidemiological situation is complicated.
So far, Vietnam has registered 328 cases since the outbreak four months ago, of which 279 have been fully recovered.
Of the 49 who are still in hospitals, 17 have tested negative to the second SARS-CoV-2 test, and six to the first, so the number of recoveries should increase in the coming days.
In view of the noticeable progress made in response to Covid-19, the government considers that the pandemic is now under control and is devoting greater efforts to reviving the economy, but under a ‘new normality’ that means observing certain preventive measures.
