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./.
