Full story of a remarkable recovery on the BBC Scotland news page now

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-53196009

Phenomenal story. Given their proximity to the source of the virus, to not have a single death in a cointry of 95 million people is quite incredible! Also, given the symbolism of the number in our clubs history there is something comforting in the fact that  "Patient 91" has made a remarkable recovery! Hope you are able to get home soon G&F!

Sadly, it shouldn't be incredible that they had no deaths - they locked down early, implemented rigorous contract tracing and quarantines, as well as clear and effective public communication. What is incredible is that other countries (I'm looking at you US and UK) decided they knew better and implemented late and substandard measures.

Countries like Vietnam and South Korea have had experience of contagious viruses such as SARS, so they are better prepared. Other governments should have been making use of that expertise and following their lead.

Rant over - glad to hear he is doing well.

Turn of phrase. I agree 100% re US/UK.

Still a phenomenal achievement though to have zero deaths, no matter how well prepared you are.

I was just about to ask if this was in reference to our history or just by chance the number he was assigned!

Terrific story all the same, hope he makes it home safely soon.

This is brilliant to see. Long road ahead of him still, I'd imagine, but what a lift to be coming home

Nice interview with Stephen on the BBC, reminding us not to take this virus lightly, he is making good progress but still a long way to go, all the best to him, he deserves  it after what he has been through.

He even made it into The Guardian today.

Great to see steady progress in your recovery G&F , although no doubt it’ll feel like the slowest toughest days of your life, 

and thank you for using some of your limited energies to reinforce need for everyone to continue to take this virus seriously .
