Accordingly, among the patients are the two flight attendants on a repatriation flight from Russia, which landed in the Van Don Airport in the northern province of Quang Ninh on May 13.

Meanwhile, the two others were repatriated citizens on a similar flight from the US to the Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi on May 16.

The new imported cases brought the total number of COVID-19 cases in the country to 324. The patients, along with all passengers on the flight, were immediately quarantined upon arrival.

The country has gone 32 days without any infections in community since April 16.

So far, 263 COVID-19 patients in Vietnam have been given the all-clear. Among 61 patients still receiving treatment, two have tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 once, and seven negative at least twice.
