HÀ NỘI — Twelve more people have tested positive for COVID-19 in the central city of Đà Nẵng, including a two-year-old baby boy.

The new locally transmitted infections bring the total amount of coronavirus cases nationwide to 558.

Three of the people who have tested positive are patients at Đà Nẵng Hospital. One is a 72-year-old woman being treated at the department of internal medicine, neurology and ophthalmology and the others are men aged 25 and 33.

Eight other cases are either relatives of patients being treated at Đà Nẵng Hospital or came into close contact with the positive cases, including the baby who was in contact with Patient No 509, a medical worker at Cẩm Lệ Health Centre.

Another patient is a 29-year-old man from Hòa Phước, Hòa Vang in Đà Nẵng. It is not clear if he has any connections with the hospital and his previous whereabouts are being investigated.

Yesterday, Việt Nam recorded its first-ever COVID-19-related deaths, a 61-year-old man and a 70-year-old man, both with underlying health conditions. — VNS
