Admitted to the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases in Hanoi, the three, aged 23 to 30, did not suffer from respiratory failure and therefore doctors only had to focus on easing their fever, sore throat and cough.
"The three of them were not in critical condition and so the treatment was not difficult," Nguyen Trung Cap, head of the hospital’s emergency department, said.
They were in an isolated room designed in such a way to let air in and then out through the restroom and outdoors.
All nurses and doctors going into the room had to wear masks and protective gear.
The room was equipped with wifi, air conditioner and water heater, and patients were provided with everything from toothbrush to clothes and taken care of diligently.
They had their blood samples taken three times a day for tests after their fever broke.
When they tested negative two consecutive times, they were considered fit for discharge.
