Vietnam's Ministry of Health confirmed 11 domestically-transmitted COVID-19 infections on Tuesday, with Hai Duong Province being still the country's largest epicenter.
Seven of the new patients had their samples taken on Sunday, the other four on Monday, the ministry elaborated.
All 11 cases had been in contact with infected patients and had thus been quarantined on Sunday.
They were logged in Hai Duong, located in northern Vietnam, the health ministry noted.
The ministry announced six recoveries on Tuesday, taking the total number of recovered patients to 1,898.
Vietnam had spent nearly two months detecting zero community cases before it found the first one on January 27 and confirmed it one day later, according to the health ministry's data.
A total of 868 local cases have been confirmed in 13 provinces and cities since then, making it the most serious wave to have struck Vietnam after the first-ever COVID-19 patient was announced in the country on January 23, 2020.
In this latest wave, 684 cases were registered in Hai Duong, 61 in Quang Ninh Province, 27 in Gia Lai Province, 35 in Hanoi, five in Bac Ninh Province, two in Bac Giang Province, 36 in Ho Chi Minh City, two in Hoa Binh Province, one in Ha Giang Province, three in Dien Bien Province, six in Binh Duong Province, four in Hai Phong, and two in Hung Yen Province.
Vietnam has recorded 2,472 coronavirus cases as of Tuesday night, including 1,561 local infections and 35 virus-related fatalities, according to the Ministry of Health's data.
The dead had suffered from comorbid medical problems, including 31 in Da Nang, three in Quang Nam Province, and one in Quang Tri Province.
The government is quarantining over 58,700 people who had contact with infected patients or made an entry from virus-plagued places.
