The Ministry of Health reported 11,429 locally-acquired coronavirus infections in Vietnam on Wednesday, down by more than 1,000 patients from Tuesday.   

The latest local cases were detected in 39 provinces and cities while the country also recorded five imported infections on the same day, the health ministry said.

The ministry had logged 12,591 locally-infected patients on Tuesday.

It recorded 6,759 of the new cases in the community, with the remainder found in isolated areas or centralized quarantine facilities.

Ho Chi Minh City documented 5,368 domestic infections, down by 76 cases; Binh Duong Province 3,440, down by 1,090; Dong Nai Province 759; Long An Province 594; Tien Giang Province 194; Khanh Hoa Province 112; Da Nang 55; and Hanoi 51.

Vietnam has confirmed 469,311 community transmissions in 62 out of its 63 provinces and cities since the fourth – and worst – virus wave emerged in the country on April 27.

Ho Chi Minh City is on top of the caseload with 226,622 patients, followed by Binh Duong Province with 118,228, Dong Nai Province with 24,525, Long An Province with 22,638, Tien Giang Province with 9,846, Dong Thap Province with 7,040, Khanh Hoa Province with 6,612, Da Nang with 4,354, Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province with 3,499, and Hanoi with 3,564.

By comparison, Vietnam confirmed a combined 1,570 locally-acquired infections in the previous three waves.

The health ministry announced 9,862 recoveries on Wednesday, bringing the total to 248,722.

The toll has risen to 11,868 fatalities after the ministry recorded 804 deaths on the same day, including 658 in Ho Chi Minh City.

Vietnam has confirmed 473,530 patients since the COVID-19 pandemic first struck it early last year.

The Southeast Asian country has received about 29.5 million vaccine shots to date, giving roughly 20.2 million doses, including 230,415 shots on Tuesday, since vaccination was rolled out on March 8.

Around 2.7 million people have been fully vaccinated.

Health authorities aim to immunize at least two-thirds of a population of nearly 98 million people against COVID-19 by the first quarter of next year.
