The Ministry of Health in Monday morning’s report announced no new case of COVID-19 transmission, with the majority of provinces seeing success in containing the pathogen spread.
According to the ministry, Vietnam has recorded an overall caseload of 2,383 COVID-19 infections, with 791 community transmission since the latest outbreak emerged on January 27.
This outbreak has spread to 13 provinces and central-level cities of Vietnam, yet 12 of them have not reported any new case for a few days, while the northern province of Hai Duong is considered the only place left with additional COVID-19 transmissions.
Hai Duong authorities on Sunday tested over 7,000 individuals in the cordoned-off outbreak site of Kim Thanh, and are speeding up contact tracing to contain the pathogen spread.
They are keeping an eye on ensuring safe cargo transport by mass-testing truck drivers entering and leaving the province.
After a few days of suffering from transport blockage, fresh produce from farms in Hai Duong was able to be shipped to other provinces once again, starting Saturday.
Meanwhile, the worldwide transmission count is standing at over 112 million, with the death toll soaring over 2.5 million.
More than 86.8 million cases, or 77.8 percent, of COVID-19 patients worldwide have recovered from the disease.
The United States remains the hardest-hit nation, with over 28.7 million infections and more than 510,000 lives lost.
However, the spread of the pandemic in the country is on a downward trajectory, now at less than 100,000 new cases per day.
North America and Europe are the two regions with the gravest COVID-19 situation, as transmission counts surpassed 32 million in each.
Meanwhile, Asia has reported over 24 million and South America has documented over 17 million cases.
