Vietnam to dismiss biggest Covid-19 field hospital

Established in a factory workshop in Ben Cat Town, Binh Duong, a Ho Chi Minh City neighbor, the Thoi Hoa Covid-19 field hospital has only 300 patients left.

These patients would be transferred to other medical facilities in the province to return the premises to the factory by the end of this month.

The hospital started operation in early August as the number of infections escalated in Binh Duong, hitting 4,000-6,000 cases per day.

The biggest Covid-19 treatment facility in the nation, the hospital used to treat more than 20,000 patients at its peak.

Aside from Thoi Hoa, the province has dismissed other field facilities for Covid-19 treatment since it allowed patients with mild symptoms to isolate at home and be monitored by mobile medical task forces.

Binh Duong is the second-hardest hit locality in the latest Covid-19 wave that broke out in Vietnam late April.

It has so far recorded 226,845 cases, with nearly 9,000 patients still under treatment.
