As of Tuesday morning, the national tally has hit 1,882 cases, including 994 community transmission cases and the death toll remains at 35.
Rising community transmission cases of Covid-19 in many cities and provinces have put considerable pressure on medical centers and infirmaries; therefore, health facilities have taken heed of preventative measures to curb transmissions in these facilities.
Director of Thong Nhat Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City Le Dinh Thanh said that the hospital has separated patients and asked people to fill health declaration sheets. When any suspected case occurs, all hospital staffs, patients and patients’ relatives will undertake test. Last but not least, the hospital has various plans for prevention of the disease to keep treatment going.
Ho Chi Minh City-based Hospital for Traumatology and Orthopedics asked patients to fill health declaration sheets including travel history. Critical patients who are rushed to the hospital for emergency treatment will be transported in a seperate path. Hospital doctors will work with their peers in the Hospital for Tropical Disease on all suspected cases to provide timely treatment.
