The Ministry of Health reported 10,489 coronavirus cases throughout Vietnam on Thursday, alongside 10,901 discharged patients and 239 fatalities.

Thirty-seven provinces and cities recorded 10,482 domestic cases whereas the country logged seven separate imported infections, the health ministry said.

The ministry had documented 10,583 locally-infected patients on Wednesday.

Over 6,500 of the latest domestic cases were found in the community, with the remaining detected in sectioned-off areas or centralized quarantine facilities.

The toll has soared to 16,425 deaths after the ministry logged 239 fatalities on the same day, including 160 in Ho Chi Minh City and 46 in Binh Duong Province.

Vietnam has reported 656,129 patients since the COVID-19 pandemic first hit it early last year.

Health workers have administered around 32.3 million vaccine doses, including 715,550 shots on Wednesday, since inoculation was rolled out on March 8.

Nearly six million people have been fully vaccinated.

Health authorities aim to immunize at least two-thirds of a population of nearly 98 million people against COVID-19 by the first quarter of next year.

Ancient citadel to be renovated for $32 mln

Over VND745 billion ($32.7 million) will be spent to renovate the Ho Citadel in Thanh Hoa in the next four years, the provincial authorities stated.

The recently approved project to preserve, restore and renovate components of the citadel will require around VND300 billion from the north-central province’s budget. The rest will come from the central government’s budget and other sources.

The main investor of the project would be Thanh Hoa Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism. It is expected to last from 2022 to 2025.

Components chosen for restoration and renovation include a 9,000-square-meter archaeological exhibition site, a trench spanning 1,000 meters, internal traffic routes and other infrastructure.

Built in 1397 by Ho Dynasty as the capital of Dai Ngu, the country’s name from 1400 to 1407, the citadel served as a military stronghold and became a symbol of patriotism and national pride.

It is unique for its construction technique, which involved the use of large blocks of stone weighing 10-26 tons that were carefully shaped, interlocked and raised up by around 10 meters.

In 2011, the citadel was recognized by the UNESCO as a world heritage.

The north wall of the citadel has been significantly damaged due to impacts from storms and heavy rain.

In October 2018 the U.S. Ambassador Daniel Kritenbrink’s Fund for Cultural Preservation approved a $92,500 grant to conserve the south gate, the most important remaining structure in the citadel. The work was completed last year.
