    Re: Vietnam MOH confirms male, 22, positive for H5N1 bird flu - Binh Duong province

    From post #2 above --

    On February 17, he had high temperatures and breathing difficulty, and was brought to a local hospital.

    On Feb. 23, he was transferred to the Ho Chi Minh City Hospital for Infectious Diseases and Tropical Diseases as his conditions became worse.
    I hope that they will report the treatment that was used to save this individual. Antiviral treatment is generally only successful within 48 hours of infection. Truong Phu Son probably did not start receiving H5N1 influenza treatment until he was transferred to Ho Chi Minh City at least six days after onset. According to the above post, he was treated for at least 10 days.

            Third bird flu patient of the year recovers, leaves Vietnam hospital

            Last Updated: Tuesday, March 06, 2012

            Vietnam?s third bird flu (H5N1) patient of this year was discharged Tuesday after being treated for nine days in a Ho Chi Minh City hospital.

            A Tuoi Tre newspaper report quoted a doctor as saying that Truong Phu Son, 22, was no longer in a critical condition.

            He is now in stable health, said Dr. Nguyen Thanh Truong, chief of the Contagious Diseases Ward at the HCMC Hospital for Tropical Diseases.

            However, he still needs weekly check-ups, since damage caused to lungs by H5N1 virus-related pneumonia cannot be fully healed, Truong said.

            Truong also said Son?s case was as critical as cases recorded in 2003 when bird flu first broke out in Vietnam. Without timely and intensive treatment he could have not been able to recover, he added.
