According to the hospital, the child was taken to the hospital on March 26 in critical condition due to dengue fever, including respiratory failure, prolonged shock, multi-organ failure, severe liver and kidney damage, and blood loss. 

A Doctor at Children’s Hospital 2 in Ho Chi Minh City examines the Cambodian child patient.

Doctors found it hard to measure the child’s blood pressure. Immediately, the patient was given mechanical ventilation, anti-shock with electrolyte solutions, transfusion of blood products, and vasoactive and cardiac drugs.

According to the patient’s family, the child living in a Cambodian locality bordering Vietnam had a high fever for two consecutive days, but local treatment could not ease it. On the third day, she was very tired, vomiting blood, so her family took her to a private clinic in the Southern province of Binh Phuoc for examination. The child tested positive for dengue fever and was rushed to Children's Hospital 2 for further treatment.

She will be discharged from the hospital soon.
