Meanwhile, four people have been recovered, raising the total cured cases in the country to 369 as of Tuesday, said the ministry.
Da Nang, a tourism hot spot, had reintroduced social distancing measures over the weekend after the government confirmed the first domestically-transmitted cases of coronavirus in more than three months.
