HANOI (Reuters) – Vietnam’s health ministry reported 19 new coronavirus cases on Sunday, bringing the total number of cases there to 113.

In mid-February, Vietnam said all 16 of its confirmed coronavirus cases had recovered, but it has since been battling with an influx of imported cases from overseas visitors and Vietnamese citizens escaping outbreaks elsewhere.

Vietnam has not yet reported any coronavirus-related deaths.
