Three cases in Binh Thuan (the 36th, 37th, and 38th) were in close contact with an infected 51-year-old woman. The woman took a return Vietnam-US flight between February 22 and March 2 with stopovers at South Korea’s Incheon airport and Qatar airport. She arrived on March 2 at Tan San Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City.
She was admitted to Binh Thuan General Hospital and quarantined for the new coronavirus tests on March 9.
Earlier today, the Ministry of Health confirmed the 35th case who is a 29-year-old woman and works for a Dien May Xanh home appliance store in the central city of Da Nang. She attended two British visitors on March 4 when they came to the store to buy SIM cards.
The two Britons tested positive with the virus on March 8.
They took Vietnam Airlines flight VN0054 that arrived in Hanoi on March 2, the same as Vietnam's 17th infected case. So far, 16 infected cases are related to people taking that flight.
