HCMC – Elaborating on plans to transport the country’s most critical patient, the 91st one, back to his hometown in Scotland, the HCMC-based Cho Ray Hospital suggested he buy a business-class ticket and be accompanied by a medical worker on his journey.

The cost for his repatriation trip will not be high and can be paid either by insurance companies, 919 Flying Company, which has been engaged by the British pilot, or enterprises and sponsors, according to the hospital.

Doctor Nguyen Tri Thuc, director of the hospital, told Tuoi Tre Online this morning, June 20, that the 43-year-old British pilot can breathe on his own without relying on a ventilator and communicate normally. However, the patient needs more time to recover motion, the doctor noted.

Giving the patient the go-ahead to be discharged from the hospital, Thuc said the patient also wishes to return to his country as soon as possible.

As the patient is conscious and able to sit in a wheelchair, he can occupy a business-class seat on a plane along with a medical worker.

The Ministry of Health said that before leaving the hospital, the health of the patient would be carefully examined next week.
