HANOI, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- Vietnam reported one new case of COVID-19 infection on Sunday, raising the total confirmed cases in the country to 1,514 with 35 deaths, according to its Ministry of Health.

The new case is a 24-year-old Vietnamese woman who recently entered the country from abroad and was quarantined upon arrival.

The ministry also announced that 1,361 patients have been given the all-clear as of Sunday.

Meanwhile, over 17,600 people are being quarantined and monitored, the ministry said.

In a new directive delivered on Saturday, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc asked relevant authorities to limit inbound flights until the Lunar New Year, Vietnam's biggest and longest public holiday which lasts from Feb. 10 to 16 this year, as new variants of COVID-19 have been spreading fast in many countries.

Earlier on Jan. 5, the Vietnamese government decided to suspend flights from countries and regions with the new variants, starting with Britain and South Africa. Enditem
