A resident in Bac Ninh, which has the second-highest infection by far in this wave, he was confirmed a Covid-19 patient on May 15.

He developed symptoms of slight fever and body pain on May 5 and was admitted to a local hospital where he stayed for four days after being diagnosed with pneumonia. As he tested negative for the novel coronavirus, he was discharged and isolated at home.

But on May 11, he started suffering higher fevers and coughed a lot.

On May 14, he had breathing difficulty and was taken to the healthcare center of Thuan Thanh District, where a rapid test confirmed him as positive with coronavirus.

He was then transferred to Bac Ninh General Hospital, where he was reported to have respiratory failure and low blood pressure and must be put on a ventilator.

On May 15, he was taken to the National Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Hanoi and was confirmed with septic shock and pneumonia caused by the new coronavirus infection.

He died late Monday night.
