The Health Ministry Tuesday morning confirmed two new locally-transmitted coronavirus cases in northern Hai Duong Province, bringing the tally of the new wave at 679.

“Patient 2270” and “Patient 2271” are F1 of previously confirmed patients related to local coronavirus outbreaks in Cam Giang and Kinh Mon districts, and had already been quarantined since last month in line with the contact tracing protocol.

They are being treated at a local field hospital.

With the latest two added to the list, Vietnam has recorded as many as 679 locally transmitted cases of Covid-19 ever since community transmissions reemerged in the nation on January 28 after 55 clean days in a row, with Hai Duong topping the list at 501 cases.

Hai Duong, the epicenter of a new coronavirus outbreak that has swept through 13 cities and provinces since late last month, entered a 15-day social distancing starting Tuesday to stem the spread of the virus.

Vietnam’s total Covid-19 infection tally is now 2,271 with 1,546 recoveries. Around 128,000 are in quarantine nationwide, either in hospitals, quarantine zones or at home.
