Da Nang released its last COVID-19 patient from the hospital on Wednesday after he had been treated for more than a month, the Ministry of Health said.
The patient, numbered 936, was declared free of the novel coronavirus at Hoa Vang Field Hospital in Hoa Vang District.
He had suffered underlying conditions like hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, and renal failure.
He had tested negative for the pathogen for three times, with no symptoms of fever, cough or difficulty breathing, following 39 days of treatment at the hospital, according to the health ministry.
The male patient will have to self-isolate at home for two more weeks, pursuant to regulations, after his hospital discharge.
This is the last patient to have exited the hospital in Da Nang, an outbreak epicenter.
A total of 551 local infections have been confirmed in Vietnam since July 25, when a new wave of cases hit the country after it had gone 99 days without any community transmission, with most traced back to Da Nang.

Vietnam began denying entry to foreign nationals on March 22 but the government allows foreign experts, skilled workers, investors, and diplomats to enter the country on a case-by-case basis.
The nation had suspended international flights since March 25 to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Since then, charter flights to the country have only been arranged to bring in experts, skilled workers, and diplomats, and to repatriate Vietnamese citizens stranded in other nations and territories due to the pandemic.
