British pilot's condition greatly improves

Health condition of the most critical Covid-19 patient in Vietnam, a British pilot working for Vietnam Airlines, is improving and he was able to communicate with medics, HCM City’s Cho Ray Hospital announced on June 3.

Identified as Patient 91 in Vietnam, he tested positive for COVID-19 on March 18 and was on a life support machine for 57 days. 

On May 20, he was given all-clear after testing negative for the SARS-CoV-2 seven times. He was then transferred from HCM City’s Hospital for Tropical Diseases to Cho Ray Hospital for further treatment.

The patient has been in a coma for more than two months. Although he is free of coronavirus, he suffered severe lung complications and doctors thought he may need a transplant. But now he is on the mend.

He has not needed dialysis for a week as his kidneys were almost functioning normal.

His liver had also worked relatively normally./.
