A fruit vendor who parks her cart just outside a massive facility owned by a company which employs tens of thousands of workers in Binh Tan District, Ho Chi Minh City tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, medical authorities told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Thursday. 

The woman’s fruit stall is located near the back gate of PouYuen Vietnam Company Limited on Street No. 49 in Tan Tao Ward, Binh Tan District.

PouYuen, a Taiwanese firm, employs about 56,000 workers.

The woman’s husband and child also tested positive for the virus.  

Authorities tested the woman and her child for COVID-19 after the pair were admitted to Gia An 115 Hospital in the same district following a traffic accident.

The results of their rapid and real-time RT-PCR tests returned positive for the novel coronavirus.

Her husband’s COVID-19 test result also showed that he had caught the pathogen.

“Authorities and medical forces have approached people [living and operating street-vending businesses] at the market area near the back gate of PouYuen Company and collected 500 samples for COVID-19 tests so far," said a representative of the medical station of Tan Tao Ward. 

"The results are still pending.”

Vietnam has documented 12,231 COVID-19 cases as of Friday morning, with 4,653 recoveries and 61 deaths, according to the Ministry of Health.

Tay Ninh Province reported one virus-related death on Thursday but the health ministry has yet to record it.

The country has logged 8,995 local infections in 40 out of its 63 provinces and cities since the fourth wave erupted on April 27, including 1,257 cases in Ho Chi Minh City.
