Pattaya: Mayor's deputy "blows a fuse" over "negligent" mishandling of coronavirus crisis

Manager reported that a deputy of Pattaya mayor Sontaya Khunpluem convened a meeting of senior officials who were openly criticised for failures in handling the coronavirus crisis at the resort. 

 

The media said Sutham Petchket "blew a fuse" after it emerged that information and travel history about six foreigners and a Thai with coronavirus had not been passed on. 

 

In addition there were still people openly congregating in places like entertainment venues and tourist sites and boxing places in contravention of the regulations.

 

Sutham's dressing down plainly stated that civil servants in Pattaya were not doing their jobs properly and the resort looked hopeless in comparison to other provinces and places in Thailand where stringent measures were in place to limit the spread of the virus.

 

Other places were following procedures laid down by the government and health authorities so why was this not happening in Pattaya, he demanded.

 

He outlined how things were going to be from now on with clearer job responsibilities and inquiries into who was not doing their work properly and why.

 

Manager even reported that Sutham used vocabulary that translates as negligent and careless regarding Pattaya's response to the Covid-19 crisis so far.

 

He said the mishandling of the response could have a severe impact on public health, the economy and tourism.

 

Manager said in their headline that there was shock in Pattaya about the latest cases now being treated at public and private hospitals.

Prayuth has no power at all in Pattaya, that's why the taxi's also don't use a meter.
