A 24-year-old girl from Cambodia entered Hong Ngu district, Dong Thap province, tested positive for nCoV at the end of 14 days of isolation.
The Steering Committee for Covid-19 prevention of Dong Thap province, on March 2, said that this girl entered through Thuong Phuoc International Border Gate, Hong Ngu District, tested negative for the first time with nCoV.
On 2/3, about to end 14 days of concentrated isolation at Hong Ngu Intermediate School, this person tested positive for the second time. The sample tested by the Pasteur Institute of Ho Chi Minh City confirmed positive for nCoV, according to Mr. Doan Tan Buu, Vice Chairman of Dong Thap Provincial People’s Committee.
Now this person (from Hong Ngu district) is taken to Hong Ngu Regional General Hospital.
On the same day, Dong Thap province recorded a 24-year-old male young man (An Giang hometown) who entered from Cambodia on February 28, was centrally isolated, tested positive for nCoV. This person was also placed in isolation for treatment at Hong Ngu Regional General Hospital.
These two positive cases have not been recorded by the Ministry of Health, so they should be considered as suspected cases. Their entry is immediately quarantined, with no risk of community infection.
Thus, Dong Thap is isolating treatment for two patients including 2424, 2443, and these two suspected infections. All of them came from Cambodia.
