This comes after the Ho Chi Minh City Disease Control Center (HCDC) conducted several assessments and announced on September 27 that the hospital successfully met all criteria to become “safe areas”, thereby being able to resume normal operation as the pandemic situation has improved.

The hospital was thoroughly disinfected before welcoming the return of patients not infected with COVID-19.

According to Nguyen The Vu, deputy managing director of District 7’s Hospital, all remaining COVID-19 patients have been duly transferred to other field hospital for further treatment.

He added that during the previous outbreak, some people in the southern city delayed medical visits for fear of COVID-19 infection at hospitals.

As a result, the has hospital began to resume operations as normal to meet the needs of local residents and ensure the health of all patients.
