There is a reason the royal family of Bhutan is beloved, and a reason the country is one of the happiest on earth. Their King is a great leader. Bert Hewitt, an American retiree, was diagnosed with COVID-19 while in Bhutan. His condition was so serious he was not expected to live. With the help of the Bhutanese government and King Jigme Wangchuck, he was evacuated to the U.S., and eventually recovered.
Hewitt contracted the virus on a cruise prior to entering Bhutan. His was the first case in that nation, and the government immediately commenced contact tracing on all his interactions. The King was personally involved in the process, spending the night at the hospital to oversee the first phase. It’s an amazing story of an involved monarch.
Only six American Covid-19 patients have been medically evacuated from around the world. One of them was Bert Hewitt, a 76-year old retiree who traveled to India and Bhutan. He was not expected to survive. Here is his story: https://t.co/weXIt3oFA9
