Ho Chi Minh City has established six city-level and at least a dozen district-level quarantine camps to cope with the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), capable of housing tens of thousands of people.

The large-scale city-level camps are located in the outlying districts of Cu Chi, Nha Be, Hoc Mon, and Thu Duc, as well as in District 7 and District 12.

Smaller-scale camps are available in District 2, District 4, District 5, District 6, District 7, District 7, District 8, District 9, District 10, District 11, and in Thu Duc, Tan Binh, and Phu Nhuan Districts.

Ho Chi Minh City currently has 17 patients confirmed to be carrying the virus.

Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on March 11 ordered ministries and localities to speed up plans for the establishment of large-scale quarantine facilities and ready their resources in light of the complicated developments of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Southeast Asian country has so far confirmed 87 cases of COVID-19 infections, with 16 having fully recovered and walked out of the hospital free of the virus by February 26.

A patient in the northern province of Ninh Binh was released from the hospital on Friday morning after testing negative for the novel coronavirus for three times.

He was the first and only recovery so far among the 71 ‘second-phase’ cases confirmed in the country since March 6.

No COVID-19 deaths have been reported in Vietnam.
