The patient with acute appendicitis is now recovering.

During the first two official working days, they received eight patients. Vietnamese doctors, under the close supervision of the director of the hospital, Lieutenant Colonel Bui Duc Thanh, successfully conducted an operation on a patient with an acute appendicitis, who was  also their first patient. Previously, they had examined the patient and concluded that she had had an acute appendicitis and needed an urgent surgery.

The patient is now recovering and will be transferred to the Mongolian level-one field hospital in Bentiu for treatment.

In addition, as authorized by the UNMISS Medical Office, an aeromedical evacuation team (AMET) of the Vietnamese L2FH successfully performed an airborne emergency case while safely flying the patient with a chronic respiratory distress syndrome by a UN helicopter to the capital city of Juba for further treatment.
