”The patient came in on Saturday, September 18, 2021, around 2 pm to 3pm in the afternoon. He was well received because the doctors even have a pre-information that he was coming. So, he was well received. And considering the nature of his illness because from what I gathered from the doctor, as he was rushed to this place, his oxygen saturation was like 60 percent.
