Touching scene of a child Covid-19 being taken for treatment
It is known that the baby’s father previously tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 and was taken to treatment. Her mother, F1, was taken to concentrated isolation. After the risk assessment, the baby was isolated at home with his grandmother and aunt.
After that, the grandmother also tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, so she was transferred for treatment. On June 23, the baby had symptoms and was tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, so the medical staff took him to Trung Vuong Hospital for treatment.
According to the medical staff, the girl listened to the medical staff’s instructions to wear protective gear, got into the car by herself and obediently sat down the whole way. The baby is staying with his grandmother, who is being treated at Trung Vuong Hospital, and is currently in stable condition.
Currently, the city also records many cases of young children infected with Covid-19. Particularly, Trung Vuong Hospital is treating Covid-19 for 38 children between the ages of 1 and 11 years old.

Therefore, parents and adults in the family need to be responsible, comply with the 5K measure of the Ministry of Health: Masks – Disinfection – Distance – Do not gather – Health declaration, compliance with regulations in the blockade and isolation areas to limit risks for themselves and their families, especially young children.
