Hanoi (VNA) –  
Eighteen COVID-19 patients will leave hospitals on April 7 after their complete recovery, according to the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control.

As of 6:00 on April 7, Vietnam had no new cases of COVID-19 to report in the country, keeping the national count at 245 unchanged from the figure reported on the night of April 6, the committee said.

Of the patients, 153 people returned from abroad.  

There are currently three people in serious conditions in hospitals, but one is showing signs of improvement.

A total of 32 patients tested negative for the virus for the first time, and 30 others got negative results for the second.

The committee has asked ministers, heads of ministerial-level and government agencies, and chairpersons of municipal and provincial People’s Committees to strictly handle violations of regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control.

Reports on the implementation work must be sent to the Ministry of Health before April 15 to be submitted to the Prime Minister before April 17./.
