Health team sent to help villagers frightened by ‘deadly ghost’

Public health officials, including a doctor and psychologists, have been dispatched to a tambon in Nong Kung Si district in Kalasin province following rumours that a “porb” ghost has killed four men recently.


The rumours prompted the action by Kalasin chief public health officer, Dr Prawit Sriboonrat, to try to pacify the frightened villagers.

 

But the move was apparently a little late, as the villagers in Moo 3, Moo 8 and Moo 11 villages of Tambon Nong Suang had already taken their own action by hiring a “hermit” to perform a superstitious rite to chase away the ghost.

 

The villagers believe the ghost has eaten the internal organs of the four men, causing them to die.

 

Prasit Singhamat, head of Moo 3 village, said the rite calmed the villagers and they appeared to have stopped worrying. Most of them returned from the rite with smiles on their faces.

 

Regardless of this, the head of the public health team, Dr Pairat Songkhram, who is a preventive medicine specialist, said officials would continue to look into the scientific causes of the deaths, and psychologists would interview the families of the four men.

 

Pairat said he has instructed team members to avoid saying anything that would ridicule or belittle the villagers’ beliefs.

I guess an autopsy will clear up that mess.

Yet they want hi- speed trains, nuclear power, the World Cup...

 

Maybe arrive in the 21st century first, where the majority of the population does not believe in Santa Claus and the tooth- fairy!

(Yes...I said "majority", which is the big difference to my western home-country, which is "Christian" by definition, but only a hand full actually believe spiritual mumbo- jumbo!)

Unfortunately I think the majority of the human race does believe in gods, demons, ghosts and all the other superstitious nonsense.

Exactly what they believe in our little village. But what about liver cancer (paalaah, lao khao etc)...

No doubt the ghost, embodied in the form of Pla-la liver flukes did these boys in.

The only thing that needs an autopsy are the brains of these medieval morons.

Well it may sound mumbo jumbo backward yet the supposedly most sophisticated advanced nation in the world has the words 'In God we Trust' written on their holy dollar.

If the autopsy finds they have no brain, no heart, no spine and the head can be interchanged with the ass then we have found the missing USA presidential candidates.

I think that comment is a bit unfair.   These are village people, possibly never had a good education, and no doubt poor access to modern medicine.

Look at London a century or more ago.  No one had any idea that their village pump was killing so many.

The Government has done the right thing bringing in a team of experts.

Yup, 'religion' has a lot to answer for :coffee1:
