A man suffering from long Covid for two years was found dead yesterday in his bedroom in Samut Prakan, unable to walk due to his illness.

The man’s mother revealed that he had been at home but was drinking alcohol on Sunday. Police officers from Bang Sao Thong Police Station in Samut Prakan Province were alerted to a death in a house located in Moo 6, Bang Sao Thong Subdistrict, Bang Sao Thong District. They arrived at the scene with officers from the Ruamkatanyu Foundation to investigate.

The incident took place in a two-storey house. On the upper floor, in the bedroom, the body of 40 year old Subin was found lying on the bed. Blood was seen coming from his mouth. Upon examination, no wounds or signs of physical assault were detected.

Subin’s mother, Chusri, explained that her son had been suffering from long Covid for two years. His condition had caused one of his legs to become weak, leaving him unable to walk and confined to the house. He had no prior medical history.

Chusri mentioned that her son had been drinking alcohol. She even joked with him about it, saying that drinking would make him sick.

Police examined the scene, took photographs, and documented the evidence before handing over the body to foundation officials. Subin’s body was then sent for an autopsy at the Forensic Institute to determine the cause of death, reported KhaoSod.
