Phra Maha Somkiat Yansuttho and his novices from Wat Matchan Tikaram wore face masks while they went out to ask for alms and have a conversation with neighbouring residents in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

He learned from the internet that the production cost of face masks would be less than Bt20 so he decided to make them for everyone in the temple.

Monks are still walking round our village every morning with no protection and potentially spreading the virus.

Crazy.

While it's a good move and will hopefully reinforce mask use into the locals minds, I do wonder about the transmission via contact on surfaces.

If for example there's a packet containing food or drink put into the alms bowl, that could be a weak link.

They should help thailand in these hard days...they must be immune to the virus with all their amulets and praying?

Those parasitic ticks will do absolutely anything to continue screwing the local poor people for their own upkeep and grand lifestyle.

They sicken me.

Vague comment there Philip. Can you be more forthright please?

 

Seriously.

 

They really should be taking all the necessary precautions, & be wearing latex gloves. Wonder why it's not been done earlier - are they somehow 'above' being given advice?
