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.
