He was found constantly panting during his isolation on the following day. Health officials then delivered him to Banglamung Hospital, where the patient was put on a tube. The hospital’s emergency department also collected his health data and a Covid19 throat swab sample.

The man had tested positive for Covid-19 on October 22 with underlying conditions of diabetes and high blood pressure. He was reportedly being treated at the hospital until he was pronounced dead today, November 6.

Additionally, three Burmese men, whose ages are 28, 29, and 41, have tested positive for the deadly virus after reportedly arriving via the Thai-Burmese border to the country on October 26.

They are reportedly working as truck drivers and were asymptomatic. All of them have already been transferred back to their home country for health treatments. They were not exposed to the general public.
