Two Vietnamese returning to the southern province of Tay Ninh from Cambodia have raised the total coronavirus infections in the country to 118.
“Patient 117” is a 30-year-old man who resides in Long An Province, a Ho Chi Minh City’s neighbor. He went on tour to Phnom Penh, Cambodia on March 9 and started to cough and have shortness of breath, two typical symptoms of Covid-19, on March 16.
He returned to Vietnam at Moc Bai International Border Gate in Tay Ninh, also a HCMC’s neighbor, on March 19 and was quarantined at Tay Ninh General Hospital where he was tested positive. The chest X-ray shows his lung has been partly damaged.
