He was taken to Malaysia’s Bumrugrad International Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand. He had not yet come to Thailand and had never heard of this hospital either. But lucky enough to get to the first Asian hospital with international credibility and one of the most modern and most efficient medical facilities in the world.
