On the afternoon of June 15, Tran Van Hai, Director of the Center for Disease Control of Dong Thap province, said that the test results of a suspected case of Covid-19 at Phuong Chau Sa Dec Hospital were negative for SARS-CoV-2. .
Before that, NTHT was born in 1999, lived in Sa Dec city, Dong Thap province to take care of patients at Phuong Chau Sa Dec International Hospital. Through the medical declaration information, the medical staff discovered that this person was related to epidemiological factors and had symptoms of Covid-19 infection, so a quick test was performed and the result was positive for SARS-CoV-2. .
Immediately after, the Center for Disease Control of Dong Thap province conducted a confirmation PCR test sample for this case and the result was negative for SARS-CoV-2. Dong Thap province has two confirmed PCR testing facilities. Explaining this result, the Dong Thap health sector said that usually, rapid tests have high sensitivity to easily screen all suspected cases so as not to miss subjects when investigating and tracing. But with the rapid test, it is not possible to confirm that the subject has Covid-19 but after performing the rapid test, a PCR test must be performed to confirm the screened result. New PCR test confirms whether the subject has Covid-19 or not. Related to the above case, today, there has been a lot of information on social networks that reflects incorrectly, causing confusion and insecurity in public opinion. Phuong Chau Sa Dec International Hospital is operating normally, well streamlining all stages, well implementing regulations on epidemic prevention and control for medical examination and inpatient departments. Dong Thap province’s functional sector recommends that people should select official information from competent professional agencies to speak, avoid spreading and sharing false information that causes confusion among the public.
