HCMC – Vietnam plans to hold a sixth consultation with doctors for a 43-year-old British pilot, the most critical Covid-19 patient in Vietnam, before sending him home on July 12.

According to Nguoi Lao Dong newspaper, the consultation for the patient will gather leading doctors and experts to evaluate his respiratory and physical functions, ensuring that he is healthy enough for a long-haul flight.

The national steering committee for Covid-19 infection prevention and control said the pilot, who is being treated at Cho Ray Hospital in HCMC, can now eat and stand up by himself. His hands are currently able to function fully, while his leg muscles have recovered by 80%.

The patient has spent over 100 days at the HCMC Hospital for Tropical Diseases and Cho Ray Hospital for Covid-19 treatment. Some VND3.5 billion of his treatment cost at HCMC Hospital for Tropical Diseases has been paid by an insurance company.

The Ministry of Health reported no new Covid-19 cases this morning, June 29, keeping the country’s tally at 355. There have been no new cases in the community for 74 consecutive days. Up to now, 335 Covid-19 patients in Vietnam have fully recovered, including five today.
