The seven-year-old boy in Binh Tan District was hospitalized in critical condition from the disease with symptoms including high fever, ulcers in his mouth, blisters, and difficulty breathing.

Doctors decided to give him respiratory assistance and injected him with Milrinone.

After two days of intensive treatment, he recovered and could move his hand to touch his relatives.

The development of hand-foot-and mouth disease has been unpredictable recently.
