Regarding the situation of Patient No.91, a British man who works as pilot for Vietnam Airlines, local doctors said he has awoken from a coma and is showing signs of improvement, yet his long-term outlook remains ominous, local media reported, citing Cho Ray Hospital that treats the patient.

The man, 43, is now capable of basic communication after doctors reduced his levels of sedative medication.

Tran Thanh Linh, deputy head of Ho Chi Minh City-based Cho Ray Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, told local media the man was able to perform simple gestures such as moving fingers and toes, yet breathing issues, organ damage and limb weaknesses remain.
