After being treated, she then tested negative for Covid-19 for the three times in a row on February, 14, 17 and 20 before being discharged from hospital on February 21.

On February 24, she was provided with the fourth Covid-19 test which, however, showed a positive result this morning, February 25.

So far, many people in Vietnam have been re-infected with Covid-19 after their recovery. The relapse would be caused by dead fragments of the virus.
