Four boys and their 25-year-old football coach "will be extracted on Tuesday", rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said.
The boys were trapped in the Tham Luan Nang Non cave that became flooded by monsoon rains while they were exploring it after a soccer practice on June 23. The youngster was wrapped in a silver space blanket to preserve what little body heat he had left.
Narongsak said Monday's rescues involving 18 divers and a support team of 100 had taken nine hours, two fewer than the rescues on Sunday.
From their dedicated ward, the boys have demanded meals of pad krapow - a Thai comfort dish made from spicy pork, basil leaves and rice.
Dr Pearce said Dr Harris was known globally both for his work as a doctor and his ability to retrieve people from hard places.

Some divers rescuing the boys trapped in a cave in northern Thailand have traversed about 10 miles (16 km) over the past two days. The boys, whose names have not been revealed, are being treated at Chiang Rai Prachanukraw Hospital in Muang district.
'The four children from today are in good health, ' he said. "We have set the plan for four people so if they want to take five out (at the same time), then they need to change the plan".
However, Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, inspector general of the public health ministry, said preliminary blood checks indicated "all kids showed signs of infection".
Family members have seen at least some of the boys from behind a glass isolation barrier, and Jesada said doctors may let the boys walk around their beds on Tuesday. Some are not even strong swimmers, and have had to learn to dive in conditions that claimed the life of a former Thai Navy SEAL on Friday.
British divers specifically requested the talented medic for the rescue operation which has already claimed a life of one of the cave divers taking part.
Workers have been labouring around the clock to pump water out of the cave, and downpours overnight Sunday and Monday did not raise the water levels inside. Wearing full-face masks, the boys either swam or were pulled along. The mission today is more hard than in the past two days, with all nine to be brought out.
The rescue mission began on Sunday morning, almost a week since the 12 boys, aged 11-16, and their coach had been discovered on an embankment 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) inside the winding tunnels. It's like when they reach the finish line exhausted'.
"The prime minister said that this kind of event should never happen again on Thai soil", Narongsak said.
