The family of a Covid-19 patient has donated over VNDVND25 billion (USD1.08 million) for HCM City to support the city’s virus treatment.

Tien Nguyen, daughter of Imex Pan Pacific Group’s chairman Johnathan Hanh Nguyen, tested positive for the virus after attending two recent fashion shows in Paris and Milan. She met with Vietnam’s 17th Covid-19 patient Nguyen Hong Nhung and many other British people there. She came to see doctors in the UK but was told to self-quarantine and self-treatment at home. However, her condition did not improve, so her family then hired a private plane to take her to Vietnam for treatment on March 9.

After a week of treatment, her condition is improving and she tested negative for the virus for the first time on March 19. She expressed her great attitude to doctors for the treatment on her Facebook.

Her family has decided to donate VND25 billion for HCM City to buy equipment for Covid-19 treatment.

Johnathan Hanh Nguyen expressed his appreciation for doctors at HCM City Hospital for Tropical Diseases where her daughter is being treated.

On this occasion, he also granted VND5 billion (USD271,391) for people in the Mekong Delta region which are ravaged by drought and saline intrusion.
