A one-year-old boy in dire need of a liver transplant earlier this month has been discharged from intensive care and is recovering, his mother has told local media.

His mother had sent a city-wide plea for a live liver donor last week to save her child, after he was diagnosed with acute liver failure after catching a fever. The cause of the sudden illness is still unknown.

Over 10 people answered the mother’s request since then, but no suitable match was found.
