HCMC – The Ba Ria-Vung Tau government on April 28 asked the provincial Department of Health to coordinate with the relevant agencies to receive, quarantine and treat 12 sailors of the Dai Duong Sea ship who are infected with Covid-19.

They have been sent to the medical center of Long Dien District, the local media reported.

The remaining six sailors of the ship were sent to a quarantine center of the board for health protection and care of provincial officials.

The decision was made as the situation is urgent and might affect the lives of the sailors and pose a high risk of pandemic transmission.

The Dai Duong Sea ship with 18 sailors on board left Sampit Port in Indonesia for Bourbon Port in Long An.

According to the Long An government, the provincial Center for Disease Control received 18 sailors’ health declarations and 12 of them reported symptoms of fever, cough and a sore throat.

On April 26, 12 sailors of the ship tested positive for Covid-19.

The Long An government proposed the Ba Ria-Vung Tau government accept and treat the sailors as the distance from the location where the ship was docked to Long An was farther. In addition, Long An is focusing on quarantining returnees and controlling immigration at the border areas.

The Long An government also apologized to the Ba Ria-Vung Tau government and the sailors of Dai Duong Sea ship for its confusion while dealing with the case.
