A BW Epic Kosan (BWEK) LPG carrier struck by a Covid-19 outbreak has left Vanuatu with a lone uninfected seafarer in isolation from his colleagues.

The 3,678-cbm Inge Kosan (built 2011) hit the headlines when one crew member was found dead on a beach on 11 April and was later found to be Covid-19 positive.

A BWEK spokesperson told TradeWinds on Thursday the vessel left Vanuatu on 21 April, but the destination has not yet been decided.
