On 24 Feb 2021, the first batch of 117,600 doses of Oxford/AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine arrived in HCMC’s Tan Son Nhat Airport.
In January 2021, in response to COVID-19 outbreak in Hai Duong, two field hospitals with a combined capacity of 600 beds have been set up in northern Hai Duong province within 24 hours. The first one was built at the medical centre of Chi Linh city, and staffed by 45 doctors and about 70 nurses who can provide treatment for 200 patients. The second one converted from the Hai Duong Medical Technical University with 210 beds.
The third wave of infections began on 28 January 2021, when Vietnam recorded an additional 84 community transmission cases within a single day in Hai Duong and Quang Ninh provinces. Most of these are related to a single Hai Duong migrant worker, who was diagnosed with the UK coronavirus variant by Japanese authorities after arriving in Osaka on 17 January. Initially, the government only quarantine the areas directly related to the infected people to limit the economic impact. But after half a month the number of cases still showed no signs of stopping, so on 15 February, entire province of Hai Duong was locked down for 15 days while Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City stopped all entertainment activities.
