Vietnam’s health ministry also confirmed 27 new community transmissions of Covid-19 on January 30 night as the latest outbreak spreads to more localities, raising the infection tally to 207.
The new Covid-19 wave began on January 28 after a gap of 55 days, and has spread to at least seven localities, including Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
The latest outbreak comes just a couple of weeks before Tet, Vietnam's biggest and most important festival, an occasion for family reunions that will see millions travel home.
The health ministry on January 30 said it has approved Covid-19 vaccine from AstraZeneca PLC for domestic inoculation. Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc also instructed the ministry to buy Covid-19 vaccines in the first quarter amid the resurgence of the pandemic.
