Vietnam back on coronavirus alert after first local infection in 3 months”

The latest case, which brought the total in the country to 416 as of Saturday morning, is a 57-year-old man from central Da Nang city who reportedly has not left the city for a month and mostly stayed at home to take care of his grandchild, according to the report.

Vietnam confirmed its first locally-transmitted case of the coronavirus in more than three months, as authorities try to determine how he may have been infected.

The government did not say how the man contracted the virus but said he had not left Danang for almost a month.

Authorities said 50 people the patient came into contact with have been isolated. He was initially diagnosed with pneumonia.

The health ministry has not officially confirmed the case as COVID-19, which comes at a time when Vietnam was about to resume global commercial flights and as domestic tourism is surging.

Late on Friday, authorities in the capital, Hanoi, reinstated a suggestion to have on masks in public destinations.

The country's ban on worldwide commercial flights is still in place, but foreign experts and skilled workers have been able to enter Vietnam throughout the pandemic provided they undergo mandatory centralised quarantine.

The other three cases are Vietnamese citizens aged from five to 34, who recently returned to the country from Russian Federation and were quarantined upon arrival, according to the ministry. Up to 275 out of the total are imported cases who were put under quarantine right after their arrival, posing no risk of community transmission. There was no confirmation the six cases were linked to the ship. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.
