The Ministry of Health reported nearly 2,000 domestic coronavirus infections in Vietnam on Sunday, most in Ho Chi Minh City and quarantine centers.

Thirty-two provinces and cities logged a combined 1,945 local cases, with 1,361 found in concentrated quarantine facilities and isolated areas, the health ministry said.

Ho Chi Minh City documented 1,397, the largest daily increase in the city so far.

The day’s count beat the country’s old record of 1,844 locally-infected patients registered on Saturday.

Vietnam has been grappling with a new outbreak since April 27 after more than a year of success in containing the virus.

The Ministry of Health has detected 26,322 local infections in 58 out of 63 provinces and cities ever since.

Ho Chi Minh City is in the front with 13,012 cases, followed by Bac Giang Province with 5,714 patients, Bac Ninh Province with 1,663, Binh Duong Province with 1,500, and Dong Thap Province with 578.

By comparison, Vietnam 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. 

The country has confirmed an accumulation of 29,816 infections since the pathogen first hit it early last year, according to the health ministry’s data.

Recoveries have risen to 9,275, including 71 announced on Sunday, whereas today’s seven deaths have taken the toll to 119.

The country has administered 4,040,783 vaccine doses to medical workers, teachers, factory workers, and other frontline staff since it rolled out inoculation on March 8.

A total of 271,409 people have been fully vaccinated.

The government set a target of immunizing two-thirds of a population of nearly 98 million people against COVID-19 by the first quarter of next year.
