The 25-year-old woman from southern Vietnam has come to live and work at a hotel called Phu An in Hai Chau District of central Da Nang City since April 30.
A contact tracing process revealed that she had come into close contact with a man who also works at this hotel.
That man was confirmed a Covid-19 patient on Tuesday morning and his source of transmission still remains unclear. He developed Covid-19 symptoms of fever and fatigue on May 2 and came to Hoan My Da Nang Hospital in Thanh Khe District for a health check. The hospital took his sample for a new coronavirus test and he was confirmed positive the next day.
With her added to the list, Vietnam has confirmed 37 local transmissions of Covid-19 since April 29.
Before then, the nation had gone for over a month free of community transmissions.
Of the cases in this ongoing outbreak, 35 are linked to hotspots in northern Vinh Phuc and Ha Nam provinces, with sources of transmission are people who were found with Covid-19 after they had completed the mandatory 14-day quarantine, including a group of Chinese experts that had already returned to their country.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Vietnam has reported 2,996 Covid-19 cases and 1,608 of them are domestic transmissions.
