Samut Sakhon: Go out without a mask and face 20,000 baht fine



Picture: Sanook


The governor of Samut Sakhon province has ramped up regulations to contain the spread of Covid-19 in the province.


Samut Sakhon is a large province on the coast to the south west of Bangkok between the capital and Hua Hin. Many people would normally traverse the province to travel north and south. 


Sanook reported that there has been a rapid rise in coronavirus cases there prompting new rules.


Governor Weerasak Wijitsaengsri announced that from today everyone outside must wear a surgical or cloth mask until April 30th at least. 


Powers under 2005 regulations are being invoked. 


People will face fines of 20,000 baht for violating the order. 


All people in the service industry must especially make sure they are wearing masks and businesses or organizations have the right to refuse service to anyone not wearing a mask. 


In addition all businesses must observe stringent social distancing rules for employees and customers.

Great news, mister Weerasak Wijitsaengsri.


But where can we buy/procure those masks ?


Should we call the prime minister ? Or the office of a deputy minister... where some people seem to have a little business on the side ?


Thank you to enlight us.


We need your wisdom.


We need your leadership.

Unless they get educated on how to use and dispose of these mask correctly all their going to do is spread the virus and quicker, and i wonder how many of them are washing reusable mask every time they go out and how many use new disposable ones every time they leave the house.

Cloth masks so unsanitary especially if you actually had the virus.


Funny...all the fussing about masks when proper surgical or M94-5 masks nowhere to be found.


Funnier still the conspiracy by government crony to sell millions of masks abroad to Communist China.
