Health authorities Wednesday confirmed a 67-year-old woman in the northern province of Bac Ninh has died of Covid-19.

Her causes of death were pneumonia due to Covid-19 and heart failure with high blood pressure.

She was admitted to Thuan Thanh General Hospital in Bac Ninh on May 11 and tested positive with the novel coronavirus the next day.

Her conditions started to worsen on Tuesday and was transferred to the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases in Hanoi for treatment.

She had stopped breathing and recovered three times since then but eventually succumbed Tuesday evening.

This the 10th death in the latest Covid-19 wave which began April 27, and the 45th death since the pandemic began.

Vietnam has recorded 2,913 local Covid-19 cases in 30 cities and provinces in the latest wave.
