Ten Vietnamese returning from Russia and Angola have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, putting Vietnam's active case count at 95.

Eight Russia returnees, patients numbered 1193 to 1200, are four males and four females. The males are aged 7, 20, 23 and 29; and the four women, 19, 31, 32 and 51. They landed at the Van Don International Airport in the northern province of Quang Ninh on Vietnam Airlines flight VN5062 on October 31.

Quarantined on arrival in Hung Yen Province, the eight have been moved to the National Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Hanoi after their test results showed Monday that they were positive for the virus.

The other two new cases, patients 1201 and 1202, are two women aged 22 and 47. They landed October 20 at the Van Don Airport on Vietnam Airlines flight VN8 from Angola and were quarantined on arrival in Bac Ninh Province. They are being treated at the northern province’s general hospital after being confirmed positive for the novel coronavirus on Monday.

Of Vietnam’s current Covid-19 tally of 1,202, 1,069 have recovered and 35 have died. Four of the recoveries were announced Tuesday. Three patients who died after recovering from Covid-19 have not been counted in either the recoveries or the deaths.

The nation has gone 62 straight days without recording any community transmission of the virus.

More than 1.2 million Covid-19 deaths have been reported worldwide.
