HCMC – A street in Hiep Binh Chanh Ward in HCMC’s Thu Duc District has been put under lockdown for disinfection and quarantine after one person was suspected of carrying the novel coronavirus Covid-19.
Last night, July 30, a representative of the healthcare center of the district told Tuoi Tre Online that the center was cooperating with the competent agencies of the district and the HCMC Center for Disease Control to lock down Street 10 as the suspected Covid-19 case lives there.
The suspected case, a 55-year-old woman, had earlier received treatment at Danang Hospital. She took a coach back to HCMC and visited the neurology department of a large hospital in the city for treatment on July 22.
On July 23, the woman used the Grab service to return home on Street 10 and self-quarantined.
She was sent to a quarantine center of the district on July 29. The competent agencies are waiting for her test result from the HCMC Pasteur Institute.
