She is one of those who have been closely monitored by the local health authorities due to close contact with the worker.

The woman is now quarantined at Quang Ha Area General Hospital in Binh Xuyen district, Vinh Phuc province and in stable health.

Of the total nCoV patients in Viet Nam, three have been cleared of the virus and discharged from hospital, including a Chinese tourist Li Zichao.

The Ministry of Health reported Sunday afternoon that there have been 82 suspected cases in Viet Nam while 745 others have been tested negative for the virus.

The Government declared 2019-nCoV an epidemic on February and has deployed a series of strict measures, including introduction of 14-day quarantine for incoming travelers from nCoV affected  regions in a bid to contain the spread of the virus to Viet Nam.

Local authorities of all 63 provinces and cities have decided to delay reopening of schools at all levels for another week.

As of 5:00 pm on Sunday, the Wuhan nCoV death toll reached 813, surpasing SARS fatalities in 2003 while the number of confirmed infections rose to 37,588 globally./.
