The newly recovered patients have brought the country’s total cases being given the all-clear to 293, making up 89.3% of total COVID-19 confirmed cases in Vietnam, according to the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control’s Sub-committee for Treatment.

They were immediately quarantined upon arrival and posed no risks of community transmission.

Currently, the patients have no fever, no cough, no shortness of breath and are in a stable condition. They will continue to be quarantined and monitored for the next 14 days.

As of 6 pm on June 1, Vietnam reported no COVID-19 cases, making it the 46th days straight without community transmission.

The total number of COVID-19 confirmed cases in the country remains at 328, with zero fatalities.

The remaining 35 COVID-19 patients are being treated at centrally- and provincially-run hospitals. All of them are in stable condition.
