HCMC – Buon Ma Thuot City of the Central Highlands province of Daklak has reported its first diphtheria case, leading to hundreds of households being placed under quarantine to prevent the disease from spreading within the community.

The Daklak Department of Health today, September 4, said that the patient, a three-year-old child, lives in Hamlet 7 in the city’s Cu Ebur Commune.

On August 29, the child developed a fever and was sent to a private clinic for a medical checkup. The child was diagnosed with tonsillitis and was given medication from the doctors.

Despite taking the medication, the child did not recover; so on September 1, the patient was rushed to Buon Ma Thuot General Hospital and tested positive for diphtheria a day later, Lao Dong Online reported.

Following the first diphtheria case, the Buon Ma Thuot government issued an order taking preventive measures to combat the spread of the disease. Accordingly, some 700 households in Hamlet 7 will be quarantined until September 11.

The municipal government also asked residents to avoid crowds and shut schools in the hamlet until the quarantine period ends.

Over the past two months, Daklak has detected 41 diphtheria cases.
