HCMC - A 32-year-old man who was suffering from tuberculosis and exhaustion has died at a concentrated quarantine facility in the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap after testing negative for Covid-19 once.

Doan Tan Buu, vice chairman of the provincial government, confirmed on June 22 that the man was dead this morning.

The deceased was identified as a resident of Phu Dien Commune in the province’s Thap Muoi District. He was sent to the quarantine center on June 8 after returning to the province from some other provinces.

On June 9, he felt tired and could not eat anything, while his health deteriorated. As such, he was transferred to the Hong Ngu General Hospital for quarantine and treatment. His Covid-19 test result came back negative on the same day, the local media reported.

He received treatment for tuberculosis and exhaustion for four days at the hospital. On June 14, as his health condition was stable, he was taken back to the quarantine facility.

However, he continued to feel exhausted and at 6.00 a.m. today, he passed away due to respiratory failure and heart failure caused by tuberculosis, Buu said.
