Both the British Consul General and the British Ambassador acknowledge the efforts of Vietnam’s Government for its swift and decisive approach to tackling the COVID-19 pandemic.

Patient 91, the British pilot is undergoing intensive care at Cho Ray Hospital.
On Wednesday evening, doctors at Cho Ray hospital announced that the British pilot coronavirus patient is now able to make basic communication.
The 43-year-old pilot is one of Vietnam’s most critical COVID-19 patient so far. He several times suffered life-threatening emergency during the treatment.
On May 21, he was declared treated of the coronavirus following many negative tests, but the disease has devastated his immune system and resulted in multiple organ failures, VNS reported.
He is undergoing intensive care at Cho Ray Hospital awaiting a lung transplantation.
On May 27, his coughing has improved and he can move his fingers and toes, although breathing and limb weakness remain issues.
Cameron is no longer on kidney dialysis, however.
His lung functions have improved quite a bit compared to the worst moments during his treatment for the virus at the HCM City Hospital for Tropical Diseases, where he has been treated for COVID-19 since he was confirmed to be infected, but these improvements are not enough, doctors said.
