According to Cho Ray Hospital, the Vietnamese-American queen Phi Nhung died in Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday morning at the age of 49 after fighting COVID-19 for a while. The hospital told the Youth Daily shortly after that Nhung finished her last breath at 11:57 am on Tuesday morning. Before his death, the Vietnamese singer was diagnosed with severe complications of COVID-19, lung consolidation and partial lung necrosis, accompanied by cytokine storm and multiple organ failure.
She died at the age of 51, at noon on September 28, after more than a month of treatment for Covid-19, at Cho Ray Hospital. The singer was born in 1970, to Gia Lai, with two Vietnamese-American bloodlines. In 1989, she went to the United States, sang temple charities, and was successful in the overseas music village. She became a sought-after singer for many record labels and music venues with her rustic voice, just enough to sing but still hear her skin.
Patients turn to extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), or extracorporeal life support and continuous dialysis. However, all the most advanced drugs and treatments and the efforts of medical experts failed to save the singer’s life.
Nhung was admitted to Gia An 115 Hospital in Binh Tan District for the first time on August 15 and then transferred to Cho Ray Hospital in District 5 on August 26, where he received one month and two days of treatment. Nhung’s full name is Pham Phi Nhung, a Vietnamese-American singer known for his talents in Vietnamese tunic, folk and country music.
Nhung was born on April 10, 1972 in Gia Lai Province in the Central Highlands Region of Vietnam. His mother is a Vietnamese and his father is an American soldier. He immigrated to the United States in 1989. For more than 20 years, she has been active in the music industry in Vietnam and abroad. The late heroine also adopted many orphans. Since the COVID-19 pandemic became severe in Ho Chi Minh City in mid-June, she participated in several charity events and then contracted the disease from an unknown source.
Nhung had planned to return to the United States in July to reunite with her daughter, but finally decided to stay in the southern city to continue her charity work.
