Pattaya: Deputy police chief urges bar patrons/owners to be responsible as second spike threatens

A large contingent of police, army and local officials descended on Walking Street and other red light areas in Pattaya on Saturday to see if Covid-19 regulations were being followed on the first Saturday of Phase 5 release from lockdown. 

 

They were not.

 

Sanook reported that the regulations were being flouted and that people were being negligent. 

 

Most of the bars were still shut but the ones that were open had too many people to adopt proper social distancing measures. There were both Thai and foreign visitors to the bars.

 

Deputy Pattaya police chief Lt-Col Nithat Waenpradap led the authorities' visit and adopted a friendly PR stance advising people to follow the rules. 

 

No arrests were reported.

 

He called on people in Pattaya to be responsible to society by following the rules lest a second spike of coronavirus proves to be worse than the first.

 

Bars and clubs are subject to 22 rules that many people have described as unworkable, notes Thaivisa.

Next step: take a couple of persons returning from abroad, actually in state quarantine, and having tested positive...send them to visit Pattaya Walking Street and hit as many bars as possible...soon a new cluster will emerge and the whole area will be closed down for an indefinite period...

 

Something similar has already happened in South Korea and New Zealand...
