Two hospitals in Da Nang city, the epicenter of the country’s largest coronavirus outbreak, discharged 11 COVID-19 patients on September 6 after making a full recovery from the disease.
Six patients came from Da Nang Lung Hospital and five were from Hoa Vang field hospital in Da Nang city.
All the 11 patients have tested negative for the SARS-CoV-2 virus at least three times and they are in stable health condition without any virus symptoms such as a fever, difficulty breathing and shortness of breath.
One of the patients suffers from chronic renal failure as well as other underlying illnesses. He will be staying in the hospital for continuous dialysis.
Upon leaving the hospital, they will be quarantined at home for another 14 days according to regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control to ensure they are safe from the virus.
