Vietnam records four more coronavirus patients Monday evening, taking the country’s active infections to 61.
Two new patients are flight attendants on a repatriation flight from Russia, while two others were repatriated citizens on a similar flight from the U.S. All were quarantined upon arrival.
On Monday, three Vietnamese patients were announced free of the novel coronavirus in Hanoi.
Vietnam has recorded 322 Covid-19 cases to date, of these 184 were imported. In total, 263 have recovered after treatment.
There has been no community transmission for over a month.
Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc late last week said that the country will focus on preventing transmission sources from abroad. It will continue to close its doors to international commercial flights and foreign tourists, he said.
Tran Dac Phu, a senior advisor at the Public Health Emergency Operations Center, said Sunday that Vietnam has done well in detecting and curbing Covid-19 infection.
The Covid-19 pandemic has affected 213 countries and territories, with reported deaths close to 309,000.
