The information was announced by Cho Ray Hospital on July 12.
The US CDC’s representative noted that amid a lot of unhappy news about the pandemic situation, it was great to see Cho Ray Hospital receiving positive attention from international media.
The doctor also included a link to an article titled “A Scottish pilot who became an emblem of Vietnam’s virus fight leaves hospital”. It was published in the New York Times on the day Patient 91 was discharged from the hospital.
Patient 91, the most critical COVID-19 patient in Vietnam, underwent total 115 days of treatment at the Ho Chi Minh City Hospital for Tropical Diseases and Cho Ray Hospital.
Cho Ray Hospital held a ceremony to discharge him in the morning of July 11.
Earlier, the Ministry of Health hosted a final consultation to conclude that the British pilot was free of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and thus eligible for discharge from the hospital and repatriation.
Yesterday, Patient 91 boarded a flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi in the evening, where he then took another flight to the UK from Noi Bai International Airport at 11pm.
