HCMC – An insurance company will bear the cost of VND3.5 billion to treat the 91st patient, a British pilot, who was the country’s most critical case of Covid-19, at the HCMC Hospital for Tropical Diseases.

The company has sent a payment confirmation to the hospital, paying the entire cost of treatment of the 43-year-old man from March 18 to May 22, Nguoi Lao Dong Online reported.

A representative of the hospital said the treatment cost escalated when the patient needed the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine to allow his lungs and heart to improve and function properly.

The patient also suffered blood clotting disorders and the anticoagulants sold in the local market failed to treat him, the representative said, adding that, as such, the Ministry of Health allowed other anticoagulants from foreign markets to be imported.

The patient was being treated at Cho Ray Hospital since May 22 and the treatment cost remains unknown.
