HCMC - Two Vietnamese women returning from Kuwait and quarantined upon arrival were confirmed infected with the novel coronavirus, raising the country’s active cases to 25, the Health Ministry announced this evening.

They are the 354th patient, who lives in HCMC’s Binh Chanh District, and the 355th patient from Nhu Xuan District in Thanh Hoa Province.

On June 18, the two patients returned to Vietnam from Kuwait on repatriation flight QH9092 of Bamboo Airways that landed in HCMC before being sent to a quarantine area in Hung Yen Province.

On Friday, their samples were taken for Covid-19 tests and the results were positive. They are being treated at the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases in Hanoi City.

So far, 12 Vietnamese people repatriated from Kuwait have tested positive for Covid-19 and are being treated at Vietnamese hospitals.

With the latest cases, Vietnam has 25 active cases after the recovery of 330 patients. The country has gone 72 days without community transmission of the virus.

The nation’s most critical patient, a British pilot, has made great progress and doctors are preparing to discharge him from HCMC’s Cho Ray Hospital, where he has been treated for other health issues after recovering from Covid-19 a month ago.
