HCMC – Vietnam’s most severe case of Covid-19, the 91st patient, is able to sit up and push the buttons to control his bed, indicating that a recovery is near, Vu Manh Cuong, deputy head of the Ministry of Health’s Department of Communications, said on June 8.

Cuong added that the 43-year-old British pilot was able to follow all medical instructions from health workers and write on the board by himself, according to Tuoi Tre Online.

After going five days without an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine, a life support machine used when a patient’s heart and lungs fail to function properly, the patient is now fully conscious and his arm strength has increased significantly, according to Cuong.

The patient has been undergoing treatment for 82 days at two local hospitals since March 18. He continually had his blood filtered and saw his lung capacity stand at a mere 10% during his treatment.

However, since May 22, the patient has taken a turn for the better and his respiratory functions have recovered by 60%.

On June 9, the Ministry of Health reported no new Covid-19 cases, keeping the country’s total number of confirmed cases unchanged at 332.
