NDO – The doctors and nurses at the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases, who have not been home for several months, are determined in their efforts to treat and care for Covid-19 patients to help them have peace of mind.

They have not returned home for several months and are ready for every situation at the front line during the fight against the epidemic.

Within the isolation treatment zone, patients are segregated into separate areas depending on the level of Covid-19 infection risk and the severity of the disease, including an area for suspected infection cases, one for infected patients and another for patients with serious complications.

So far, the hospital received and treated 143 cases that were confirmed positive for SARS-CoV-2, including 15 patients with severe complications, of which five are currently in life-threatening conditions.

Thanks to the great efforts of all medical staff and employees in the hospital, 110 patients have recovered. Only two patients are currently on mechanical ventilation but they are capable of communication.
