Hanoi mayor refutes info that latest nCov patient attended Uniqlo store opening
Minh An 02:09, 2020/03/07
On social medial platform Facebook, some girls who attended the Uniqlo opening were mistaken with the first confirmed nCoV case in Hanoi.

Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung has denied rumors saying that the first coronavirus-infected patient in Hanoi had attended the opening of the first Uniqlo store on March 5.

Speaking to reporters after an urgent meeting on Covid-19 prevention late on Friday evening, mayor Chung said he had personally spoken to N.H.N, the latest confirmed nCoV-infected case in Vietnam, and found out that the 26-year-old girl was taken to Hong Ngoc hospital at 2p.m on March 5 and was admitted to the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases at 5p.m on the same day.

Meanwhile, the opening of the first Uniqlo store was on 6p.m on March 5. “It was impossible that the [nCov-infected] girl attended the opening,” said Chung, who attended the opening on March 5.

Previously, on social medial platform Facebook, some girls who attended the Uniqlo opening were mistaken with N.H.N. The mistaken girls then made clarifications on their Facebook sites.
