The Ministry of Health reported 11,527 coronavirus cases in Vietnam on Wednesday, together with 11,919 discharged patients and 236 deaths.

Thirty-five provinces and cities logged 11,525 domestic cases while the country recorded another two imported infections, the health ministry said.

The ministry had documented 11,687 locally-infected patients on Tuesday.

Nearly 5,900 of the latest domestic cases were found in the community, with the remaining detected in sectioned-off areas or centralized quarantine facilities.

Ho Chi Minh City reported 5,435 local infections, down by 1,086 patients from yesterday; Binh Duong Province 4,179, up by 570; Dong Nai Province 930; Long An Province 191; An Giang Province 186; Kien Giang Province 137; Can Tho City 48; Da Nang 10; and Hanoi seven.

Vietnam has confirmed 714,497 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 suffers the most with 353,655 patients, followed by Binh Duong Province with 187,493, Dong Nai Province with 42,362, Long An Province with 31,041, Tien Giang Province with 13,464, Dong Thap Province with 8,136, Khanh Hoa Province with 7,581, Da Nang with 4,884, Hanoi with 4,185, and Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province with 4,096.

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

The health ministry announced 11,919 recoveries on Wednesday, bringing the total to 487,262.

The toll has soared to 17,781 deaths after the ministry documented 236 fatalities on the same day, including 181 in Ho Chi Minh City and 37 in Binh Duong Province.

Vietnam has recorded 718,963 patients since the COVID-19 pandemic first hit it early last year.

Health workers have given around 35.6 million vaccine doses, including 616,590 shots on Tuesday, since inoculation was rolled out on March 8.

Almost 6.9 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.
