The latest patient is a receptionist at a hotel in Nha Trang city, the central province of Khanh Hoa. The hotel was where the Chinese father and son, the first nCoV infection cases in Vietnam, stayed during their travel in the country.
The son has so far recovered, while the father is still in isolation and receiving treatment at Cho Ray hospital in Ho Chi Minh City.
According to the ministry, the number of nCoV infections in the world rose to 11,949 as of 8:30 on February 1, with 11,791 cases in China. The death toll increased to 259, all in China.
Vietnam is facing a very high risk as it has a long border with China which sees busy activities. Authorities have taken many strong and resolute measures against the disease./.
