The man, 29, is among the eight workers of Japanese-invested Nihon Plast Co., Ltd, who were sent to China’s Wuhan city for training for two months and a half and came back on January 17.

Meanwhile, the 55-year-old woman got the virus from another patient.

Health experts said although there is no vaccine for the new virus, Vietnam has enough capacity and experience to treat COVID-19 patients.

Later the same day, two more Covid 19 patiens, also from Vinh Phuc province, were discharged from a clinic in Quang Ha commune, Binh Xuyen district./.
