Jesada said that they ran few tested on them such as blood tests and x-rays scan. Through these scans, the two of the boys were diagnosed with the symptoms of pneumonia. The team instantly put them on antibiotics that have worked fine and the boys are in a normal state now.

Thailand and even the other nations are captivated by the ‘Wild Boar’ rescue mission. The 12 boys and their soccer coach were trapped in the cave for more than two weeks due to flooded water. After 10 days of being trapped, they finally were within reach by the divers who provided them food and water in the Tham Luang cave.
The rescuers are rushing to rescue the other boys and coach from the cave. But the heavy rain is complicating the things by reflooding the cave.
