People have been cumulatively taken to the hospital aplenty in Vietnam only in the beginning three days of the Tet holidays, according to a report by the Ministry of Health.
The ministry said that 190 people nationwide were admitted to the hospital due to fire-crackers from February 15 to 17.
This figure is approximately 1.5 times that of the same period last year.
The number of those hospitalized after being exposed to other types of explosive was 53, more than double from the last Tet.
Infirmaries all across Vietnam have also received nearly 1,950 patients with injuries from physical violence, although this number is smaller compared with that of the same time period last year.
Of these people, six died, roughly 1,100 became in-patients, and over 270 were referred to more advanced hospitals.
Drunkenness was responsible for 230 of these fighting cases.
About 400 people were taken to the hospital for other problems related to drinking and this number is expected to increase over the rest of the Tet holidays.
Intoxication of wine and beer is a common practice by Vietnamese people during Tet parties and celebrations.
