A field hospital with a capacity of 500 beds for COVID-19 treatment has been in the making in Hoang Mai District, Hanoi, according to district chairman Nguyen Minh Tam.

Covering an area of 3.5 hectares in Hoang Mai District’s Yen So Ward, the construction of the hospital is expected to be completed before August 30.

The People’s Committee of the district has collaborated with the Hanoi Medical University Hospital to work on the project.

The committee also requested local electricity, water, and drainage solution companies to create all favorable conditions for the construction of the project.

The district authorities are currently working on the site clearance for the building of the hospital’s entrance.

Once put into operation, the hospital will provide 500 beds for COVID-19 patients in Hanoi.

The Ministry of Health on Saturday morning confirmed 4,060 domestic COVID-19 cases, taking the country’s tally to 141,122, with 35,484 recoveries, as recorded since early 2020.

Of the new cases, three transmissions were detected in Hanoi while 2,503 infections were logged in Ho Chi Minh City, which has recently led the country in daily new infections, with thousands of patients registered per day.

Since April 27, when the pandemic’s fourth wave hit the Southeast Asian country, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City have accounted for 1,278 and 88,566 cases, respectively, in the country’s total of 137,317 domestic infections.
