It is not yet known whether the man died from Covid or how he ended up on the beach.
Like many of the isolated islands in the Pacific, Vanuatu has had very few registered Covid cases. According to the John Hopkins university, out of a population of 300,000, the country only found 3 cases of Covid-19.
16 police officers are now in quarantine after they found the body while the authorities are urging the public to have a swab test.
