Bulk carrier THOR MONADIC entered Hong Kong waters on August 24, 2021, from Shanghai outer anchorage, and was anchored south of Lamma island, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “Bulk carrier THOR MONADIC entered Hong Kong waters on Aug 24 from Shanghai outer anchorage, and was anchored south of Lamma island. On Aug 25 crew tests were taken, 15 out of 23 crew were found to be test positive.

“Bulk carrier is put under quarantine, and while 1 crew with suspicious symptoms (cough, maybe high temperature), was transferred to hospital, the rest remain healthy. The ship arrived at Shanghai anchorage on Aug 10 from India, left anchorage on Aug 20.

“It could be just one more covid-test positive-quarantine case, as regular and familiar, as a sunset, except for one moment – Hong Kong authorities suspect ship’s management attempted to conceal probable crew infection, and provided to authorities “false information”. So the Department of Health launched an investigation.”

It added: “Who knows, what’s all about. The ship, most probably, is manned with Thai crew, so they should be vaccinated. What’s the penalty for “providing false information”? Hefty fine, long-term sentences?”
