Houston thumps up after discharged from hospital 

Young Matthew Houston, an American citizen infected with the coronavirus, has said Vietnam has carried out the isolation work well to prevent the spread of the virus to the community.

Dr Le Duc Nhan, director of Da Nang Hospital, said the patient remained in stable health condition after admission to hospital. X-ray images of his lungs, kidneys and livers showed they were operating normally.

Being discharged from hospital on April 3, Houston said Vietnam has done a good job concerning the isolation work to ensure the virus could not spread to the wider community.

 

He also thanked Vietnamese doctors for saving his life and protecting his family from the coronavirus.

Houston is the fourth COVID-19 patient having received discharge from hospital in Da Nang.

“It’s my third time in Vietnam but the first time I interacted with the same people for a number of days and I can say all of you were great representatives of your country.
