The Ministry of Health logged 4,899 more COVID-19 cases in Vietnam on Friday, along with 2,169 recoveries and 56 deaths.

The latest cases, including ten imported and 4,889 local infections, were documented in 50 provinces and cities, the health ministry said, adding that 2,305 patients were found in the community.

Ho Chi Minh City reported 977 of the domestically-infected cases, Binh Duong Province 697, Dong Nai Province 697, Bac Lieu Province 398, An Giang Province 320, Kien Giang Province 249, Tay Ninh Province 180, Soc Trang Province 151, Can Tho City 101, Ha Giang Province 60, Hanoi 37, Khanh Hoa Province 30, Da Nang two, and Hai Phong two.

Vietnam had confirmed 4,876 locally-acquired infections on Thursday.

The Southeast Asian nation has registered 905,558 community transmissions in 62 out of its 63 provinces and cities since the fourth virus wave emerged on April 27, 813,315 of them having recovered from the respiratory disease.

Ho Chi Minh City is still the biggest epicenter with 430,059 patients, followed by Binh Duong Province with 231,721, Dong Nai Province with 64,412, Long An Province with 34,559, Tien Giang Province with 16,199, Dong Thap Province with 9,611, Khanh Hoa Province with 8,947, Da Nang with 4,965, Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province with 4,603, and Hanoi with 4,533.

Vietnam detected only 1,570 locally-transmitted infections in total in the previous three waves.

The health ministry recorded 2,169 recoveries on Friday, bringing the total to 816,132.

The toll has jumped to 21,966 deaths after the ministry announced 56 fatalities on the same day, including 32 in Ho Chi Minh City and six in Binh Duong Province.

Vietnam has found 910,376 infections since the COVID-19 pandemic first hit it early last year.

Health workers have administered nearly 79 million vaccine doses, including 1,712,435 shots on Thursday, since vaccination was rolled out on March 8.

More than 23.3 million people have been fully inoculated.

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