The Health Ministry confirmed 127 domestic infections Sunday morning, raising the infection tally in Vietnam's fourth coronavirus wave to 1,080.

The new patients were recorded in four northern provinces of Bac Giang, Bac Ninh, Dien Bien and Hoa Binh, all related to previously confirmed patients and outbreaks in areas that have been already isolated.

Bac Giang recorded 98 new cases, all linked to outbreaks at Japanese electronics company Hosiden and Quang Chau industrial park in Viet Yen District, which are now under lockdown.
