VOV.VN - Vietnam’s most critical British patient (patient 91) on June 15 continued to display a remarkable recovery with signs of full consciousness, good verbal communication, and gradually recovered hand muscles as normal, according to the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control.

The patient’s health condition is getting better as his renal, cardiac, and hepatic functions have seen vast improvements, with normal body temperature at 37oC.

According to health experts, he still needs more time to make a complete recovery, and during the recovery process he may suffer new episodes of infection.
