HÀ NỘI — A 34-year-old man who suffered from meningitis died of SARS-CoV-2 on Sunday evening, the 37th COVID-19 death in Việt Nam since the start of the pandemic.

According to the Treatment Sub-committee of the National Steering Committee on COVID-19 Prevention and Control, he died due to a number of underlying medical conditions.

He succumbed to bacteremia in patients with ventricular dilatation, severe pneumonia due to SARS-CoV-2 and the consequences of a brain injury, the sub-committee said.

The man from the northern province of Bắc Ninh was taken to the hospital on April 24 after suffering a traffic accident that caused a traumatic brain injury.

He was announced as a COVID-19 patient on May 6 and was treated for severe pneumonia caused by COVID-19, brain injury, meningitis, septicemia and dilated ventricles.

Despite receiving intensive care, his condition did not improve.

Việt Nam recorded its 36th COVID-19-related death two days ago as an 89-year-old woman with a history of diabetes and hypertension passed away.

The National Hospital for Tropical Diseases, the leading COVID-19 treatment facility, has become a new cluster of COVID-19 cases since the pandemic’s resurgence on April 27.

The hospital has recorded 89 cases so far. — VNS
