A woman from Vietnam’s Mekong Delta has passed away after being diagnosed with COVID-19 about a week earlier.

The case was recorded in My Tho City, Tien Giang Province, Tran Thanh Thao, director of the provincial Department of Health confirmed on Tuesday morning.

The 61-year-old patient, coded No. 11,793, tested positive for the novel coronavirus on June 15 and was confirmed by the Ministry of Health on June 17.

She was treated at Long Dinh COVID-19 treatment hospital in Tien Giang.

The patient had a history of type-2 diabetes and hypertension.

On Monday morning, the woman had such symptoms as coughing, fatigue, and difficulty breathing so she was transferred to the Tien Giang Field Hospital for Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases as her condition worsened.

Doctors diagnosed her with respiratory failure, COVID-19, type-2 diabetes, and high blood pressure.

Despite their efforts, the patient died later the same day.

She will be cremated in accordance with Ministry of Health regulations.

This is Vietnam’s 70th coronavirus-related death since the beginning of the pandemic, but the health ministry has yet to confirm this fatality.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the country has documented 13,630 COVID-19 cases, with 5,453 recoveries.
