Barriers were placed in front of the gate of K hospital, Tan Trieu campus, on the morning of May 7.

Arriving at the blockade scene, Hanoi City Chairman Chu Ngoc Anh assessed the risk at Hospital K as more complex than the Central Tropical Diseases Hospital because patients come from all northern provinces.

He asked Thanh Tri district authorities to increase the blockade of K Hospital because it is located close to people’s houses, and asked surrounding shops to stop operating.

The Capital Command mobilized chemical defense forces to spray disinfectant.

More than 8:00 a.m. this morning, at K Hospital facility 3, Tan Trieu, Thanh Tri district, a hard quarantine barrier covered the hospital gate and announced: `Due to the Covid-19 situation, we are temporarily not accepting patients.`

Right on time to go to work, there was a slight congestion on Phung Hung Street because curious people stopped to look.

Unable to get inside, Mr. Nguyen Tich (from Thanh Hoa) sat down on the walkway up and down the pedestrian overpass, in front of the hospital gate.

K Hospital has three facilities in Quan Su (Hoan Kiem), Tam Hiep (Thanh Tri) and Tan Trieu (Thanh Tri), with more than 2,000 medical staff working.

Previously, from May 6 to 8, more than 2,000 medical staff and workers at K Hospital were sampled for Covid-19 screening.

Institute leaders said that cancer patients with immune systems are often weaker than normal people, and if they get Covid-19, it will easily get worse.

On the afternoon of May 5, the Central Tropical Diseases Hospital was also blocked due to a positive case working there.

Ten days after the new outbreak broke out, a total of 7 hospitals were blocked, including the Central Tropical Diseases Hospital (Hanoi);
