Long explanation:

In Vietnamese, 'nữa' is often used alongside time expressions to signify an additional or further amount of time. It is equivalent to the English phrase 'more' as in 'two more weeks' or 'three more hours'. When 'nữa' is used at the end of a sentence with a time expression, it means that the specified amount of time (hours, days, weeks, etc.) will be added.
