HCMC – A Vietnamese citizen who returned from abroad and a local girl have been confirmed as the two latest cases of Covid-19 in Vietnam this evening, taking the nation’s cumulative total number of confirmed cases to 257.

According to the Health Ministry, the 256th patient is a 52-year-old resident of the northern province of Hung Yen. He came back to Vietnam from Russia on flight SU290 through Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport on March 27 and was sent to a quarantine center upon arrival.

The other patient, confirmed as the 257th case, is a 15-year-old student in Me Linh District, Hanoi. A man who is a friend of the student’s father and was later confirmed as the country’s 243rd coronavirus patient visited her house and chatted with her dad on March 20.

On April 8, she developed symptoms including a fever and runny nose. Her Covid-19 test result came back positive two days later. Her dad also had his samples collected for testing and the result was negative.

To date, 144 of the 257 cases nationwide have made a full recovery, with 16 latest discharges made today, April 10. Of the remaining 113 active cases, four patients tested negative once for the flu-like virus and 17 others tested negative twice.
