COVID-19 cases are now treated at home with the  help from local medical stations via tele-medical advice, mostly for high-risk patients. All hospitals in the city must carry on their routine medical examination and treatment with a section to treat patients with COVID-19. 

During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic Ho Chi Minh City established 32 field hospitals with 42,800 beds and rearranged 64 hospitals to treat COVID-19 patients.
