Police in the northern Vietnamese port city of Hai Phong have been investigating a case where a seaman was found hanged at a centralized quarantine facility for COVID-19 prevention and control.

Nurses at the second branch of Vietnam-Czech Friendship Hospital in Hai Phong found out Thai Doan Th., 52, living in Do Luong District, north-central Nghe An Province, had already died in his room during a daily check-up on Tuesday morning.

Inside the room, Th.’s body was seen suspended in a hanging position.

Despite resuscitation, Th. could not be saved. 

Th. was a crew member of the Mekong ship operated by Ho Chi Minh City-based Gia Long Ship Co. Ltd.

After the vessel had landed at Hai Phong Port earlier, its crew members, including Th., were sent to the second branch of the Vietnam-Czech Friendship Hospital for concentrated isolation for COVID-19 prevention and control according to regulations.

The seafarer showed no abnormal signs and had no significant illness when he was put under medical monitoring, according to a leader of the hospital.

Having examined the scene, local authorities are conducting an investigation into the case.
