The Health Ministry announced over 8,000 new domestic Covid-19 patients Wednesday, with the death ratio in the last seven days falling by half from the preceding period.

Quang Ninh Province added over 3,300 earlier cases to the national database Wednesday, bringing the single-day tally to 11,313.

In the past 24 hours, five Covid-19 patients have died, bringing the death tally in the past seven days to seven, down 50 percent from the previous seven-day period.

Since the pandemic started last year, the death toll in Vietnam has climbed to 43,034, or 0.4 percent of all infections.

In the latest wave that hit the country in late April, more than 10.6 million cases have been confirmed and 9.1 million of them have recovered.

80.3 percent of the population have received two vaccine doses.

Vietnam scrapped the medical declaration requirement for all foreign entrants starting Wednesday as the number of Covid-19 infections and deaths drops globally.
