Video: Amazing Thailand - public ordered to do press-ups and jumping jacks for not wearing face masks

A video from southern Thailand showed public health officials at checkpoints ordering people riding motorcycles and driving cars to do 20 press-ups or jumping jacks for not wearing masks. 

 

It all seemed very good natured and no one was fined.

 

However, they were warned not to do it again and wear a mask next time. 

 

77kaoded reported that some people were given masks to wear.

The spectacle seems to have been the idea of a phu yai ban (village chief) called Chaiya in the Na Muang Petch sub-district of Trang. 

 

Children and adults - some carrying a little extra weight - were seen smiling as they complied with the orders.

We traveled back by car from our house near Trang last month to here in Pattaya (retirement extension renewal) and was advised beforehand to have masks and sanitised gel "at the ready" we did but with only one check along the 940 kms run it was a bit of a waste of time....4 weeks on it may be different,we will see as were off down there again on sunday :thumbsup:

My Mrs was turned back in the village last month with 4 kids in the car as she didn't have hers and the kids masks on, and was going up the road 400 metres to her mums farm land.

 

She was livered, came back huffing and puffing as if she was going to get the shotgun....lol
