Speaking at Sunday’s online conference, connecting 700 points from central hospitals to grassroots clinics, Deputy Minister Long said Vietnam has successfully cultivated nCoV virus, helping to accurately answer questions about the virus’ origin, its toxicity, disease mechanism, and virus immunization to sort out appropriate method of treatment.

Amid rising death toll from the epidemic in China, Vietnam has established 3-ring isolation measure. The 1st ring is for people suspected of nCoV infection, who will be immediately isolated at health facilities. The 2nd ring is for Vietnamese or foreign citizens entering Vietnam from Hubei province, who will be isolated in concentration zones designated by the People’s Committees of provinces and cities. The 3rd ring is for people returning to Vietnam from other Chinese regions, who will be isolated within their families.

Vietnam has confirmed the 14th new coronavirus infection case, the Ministry of Health announced on Sunday. The 55-year-old female patient is a neighbor of a worker in Binh Xuyen district, Vinh Phuc province, who had been tested positive for the virus after coming back home from a training course in China’s Wuhan city.
