VTV.vn - The Ministry of Health confirmed nine more locally transmitted coronavirus infections on February 22. Six of the new patients are in Hai Duong province, the epicenter of the new outbreak.

They are all F1 cases. Vietnam has so far confirmed 800 new cases during the latest coronavirus outbreak that started in late January 2021.

Meanwhile, Hai Phong City, the largest port city in northern Vietnam, has reported three new infections, ending a three-week-long streak with no new cases.

After a female orderly of Hai Phong Transport Hospital tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus on February 22, epidemiologists confirmed two more infections on the same day.

Except for the orderly, all the remaining 88 healthcare workers at Hai Phong Transport Hospital have tested negative for the virus.

The city has decided to impose social distancing measures on areas where infections are reported. It also suspended non-essential services to slow the spread of the virus in the wider community.
