The native of Son Loi District in the northern Vinh Phuc Province is the father of Nguyen Thi Du, a 23-year-old woman who was one of eight people who returned from China’s Wuhan city, epicenter of the outbreak, in January. Six of the eight people were found infected later, and some of them passed it on to relatives and friends.
The father was the 11th person in Vinh Phuc Province who tested positive for the novel coronavirus, and the only one still quarantined.
He had stayed with his daughter after she returned from Wuhan until she was quarantined on January 25. Other members of the family were also infected, but they have been treated successfully and discharged.
The hospital took his blood sample for the first test on February 23 and the second on February 24 that came back negative for the coronavirus.
He is now in stable conditions.
So far, 16 out of the 16 coronavirus patients in Vietnam have been successfully treated.
Since February 13, Vietnam has recorded no new infections./.
