The Ministry of Health recorded 5,376 more COVID-19 cases throughout Vietnam on Sunday, alongside 28,859 discharged patients and 114 deaths.

The new cases, including 5,367 local and nine imported infections, were reported in 39 provinces and cities, the health ministry said, adding a total of 2,674 patients were detected in the community.

Vietnam had logged 5,477 locally-infected patients on Saturday.

The country has confirmed 803,993 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 with 397,513 patients, followed by Binh Duong Province with 215,643, Dong Nai Province with 50,663, Long An Province with 32,694, Tien Giang Province with 14,120, Dong Thap Province with 8,296, Khanh Hoa Province with 7,907, Da Nang with 4,920, Hanoi with 4,239, and Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province with 4,165.

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

The health ministry announced 28,859 recoveries on Sunday, bringing the total to 693,797.

The toll has climbed to 19,715 deaths after the ministry documented 114 fatalities on the same day, including 79 in Ho Chi Minh City and 20 in Binh Duong Province.

Vietnam has registered 808,578 patients since the COVID-19 pandemic first struck it early last year.

Health workers have administered approximately 44.6 million vaccine doses, including 979,585 shots on Saturday, since vaccination was rolled out on March 8.

Almost 10.5 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.
