The cases include a mother, daughter and an unrelated three-month-old baby. That left only two of 16 people still hospitalised due to COVID-19 in Vietnam as of Thursday evening.

The 49-year-old mother and 16-year-old daughter that left the hospital on Thursday contracted the virus from her other daughter who had been on a training course in Wuhan late last year.

“My eldest daughter getting infected with the coronavirus and infecting the whole family was not something that anybody would wish for,” the mother told the media while leaving the hospital.
She apologised for enabling the virus to spread and causing concern.

The eldest daughter has already recovered and was discharged from hospital last week.

The father of the family was also infected with the virus and is still receiving treatment.

“I hope that my husband will soon be cured so that the whole family can finally be reunited,” she said.

The baby who was discharged on Thursday morning was also from Vinh Phuc – the biggest cluster detected in Vietnam, with 11 cases of the virus.

She contracted the virus from her grandmother and was brought to the National Hospital of Paedetrics in Hanoi for treatment. Her mother stayed in quarantine with her the whole time but was not infected with the virus.

According to the Ministry of Health, 15 out of 16 patients in Vietnam were successfully cured of the virus. These include the American Vietnamese patient in HCM City who is expected to be discharged from hospital on Friday, doctors said. — VNS
