175 tourists in Da Nang, 66 in Quang Nam Province and 40 in Thua Thien-Hue Province have finished their 14-day compulsory isolation.
None tested positive for Covid-19 during the quarantine period, either at hospital or centralized facility.
Quang Nam, home to popular ancient town Hoi An, on Wednesday sent a batch of 66 foreigners to Da Nang International Airport from where they would fly home. These had previously met with patients who had contracted the new coronavirus, which causes Covid-19, and thus entered quarantine.

For now, Quang Nam is keeping 47 in quarantine, all in stable condition. Previously, it had released 54 foreigners from isolation.
Da Nang City has so far admitted 118 foreign tourists into hospitals for quarantine as they had either arrived from stricken areas or come into close contact with Covid-19 patients, with all displaying Covid-19 symptoms (coughs, fever, shortness of breath, sore throat). By Wednesday, 107 had been discharged after testing negative more than once.
The city has also released 68 other foreigners quarantined at centralized facilities after they arrived from stricken areas. It is now treating four Covid-19 cases, two Britons, one American and a Vietnamese woman who had close contact with the Brits.
In Thua Thien Hue, 44 have been released from hospital after each tested negative for the novel coronavirus twice while in quarantine.
The province now has two Covid-19 patients under treatment, both British. Previously, it had confirmed 53 foreigners were completing their two-week quarantine. VNExpress reports.
As of 21:00 on Wednesday, Vietnam recorded 141 COVID-19 cases, 17 cases have recovered and discharged from local hospital.
