Authorities in all 63 provinces across Vietnam have reopened schools, after a more than three-month break aimed at stopping the spread of coronavirus.
No new cases of the COVID-19 disease or related deaths were reported on Monday in Vietnam, marking the 18th-straight day without any recorded community transmission of the virus.
The latest confirmed case was reported on Saturday in a British visitor who arrived in Ho Chi Minh City to work on a project of Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (Petro Vietnam), the health ministry said.
The patient flew to Vietnam with 12 other experts on April 28 on a private jet at the Tan Son Nhat International Airport. The group was immediately quarantined.
His case brings the total in the country to 271.
As of Monday, 219 patients in Vietnam have made a full recovery, while 52 cases are being treated.
The country is quarantining more than 30,000 people, including 443 suspected cases.
