DA NANG, Aug 10 (Vietnam News/ANN): Authorities in Danang are implementing strict social distancing measures for markets, meaning households will receive tickets for odd or even days to limit crowds.

Sellers will have to stockpile enough goods for two days and shoppers will be able to visit the stalls twice a week.

The city’s department of industry and trade said all supermarkets will provide door-to-door delivery services for online and call orders from customers.

Health declarations and body temperature checks are mandatory for everyone visiting traditional markets and supermarkets in the city.

The central city’s information and communications department has launched a Covid-19 map at http://covidmaps.danang.gov.vn – that helps users see quarantine centres, lockdown zones, living quarters and itineraries of Covid-19 patients.

Earlier, the department also started a Covid-19 database for local people at http://congdulieu.vn and opendata.danang.gov.vn, providing information related to the virus. A daily Covid -19 bulletin is available on Zalo or 1022 switchboard.

The city’s health department said two locked down hospitals – the General Hospital and the hospital for Rehabilitation and Orthopaedics – would reopen on August 11 after a two-week closure, while barriers blocking streets (Hai Phong, Quang Trung and Nguyen Thi Minh Khai) surrounding the hospitals would be removed the same day.

The department said medical samples of all doctors, nurses and residents at the lockdown zones had tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 twice. The C Hospital, which is included in the lockdown zone, reopened last Saturday.

Meanwhile, Vietnam announced that two people have died of Covid-19 related complications, one a 33-year-old woman, the youngest fatality so far.

The other person to lose her life is a 47-year-old woman.

Both patients are from Da Nang and both had serious underlying health conditions. The news was announced on Monday morning (Aug 10) by Deputy Minister of Health Nguyễn Trường Sơn.

The total number of deaths related to coronavirus in Viietnam now stands at 13.

The 33-year-old woman who died lived in Da Nang City's Lien Chieu District. She was suffering from end-stage chronic renal failure, heart failure, hypertension and sepsis.

The second woman to die is a 47-year-old from Hai Chau District in Da Nang. She had end-stage chronic renal failure with hemodialysis and stent insertion, heart failure and hypertension.

On August 4, she tested positive for COVID-19 and two days later was transferred to Hoa Vang Medical Centre for treatment. There she was placed on a ventilator and treated with tranquilizers.

In the early hours of Monday morning, she slipped into a deep coma and was pronounced dead at 1.15am. - Vietnam News/Asian News Network
