Vietnam’s Ministry of Health logged 235 domestic coronavirus infections on Wednesday, taking the local tally kept since late last month past 3,000 patients.

One hundred and twenty-one of the cases were recorded in Bac Giang Province while 91 were reported in Bac Ninh Province, the health ministry said in a report.

Both northern provinces are home to many industrial parks where workers have tested positive in droves.

Hanoi detected 16 new patients, including one case at the National Hospital for Tropical Diseases.

The health ministry announced 59 recoveries on Wednesday, bringing the total number of recovered patients to 2,853.

It also confirmed a virus-related fatality, a 67-year-old woman with many underlying conditions.

Vietnam has battled the COVID-19 pathogen’s re-emergence since April 27, with 3,028 community transmissions having been reported in 30 out of 63 provinces and cities.

Bac Giang has recorded 1,520 cases in this fourth wave, followed by Bac Ninh with 624 patients, Hanoi with 344, Da Nang with 154, and Vinh Phuc Province with 89.

Only eight patients have been recorded in Ho Chi Minh City in this bout.

Vietnam has detected 6,086 cumulative COVID-19 cases, including 4,597 local infections, since the virus emerged in the country on January 23, 2020, according to the Ministry of Health’s data.

Forty-five patients have died, most having suffered critical pre-existing health problems.

The current round has seen 10 patients pass away, with the remaining 35 deaths reported last year.

The nation confirmed 106 community cases in the first wave from January 23 to April 16, 2020, 554 in the second from July 25 to December 1, 2020, and 910 in the third from January 28 to March 25, 2021.
