Almost 400 at risk of Covid-19 after infected Egyptian soldier visited Rayong department store

Almost 400 people carry the risk of contracting Covid-19 after an Egyptian soldier infected with the virus and his group visited a Rayong department store, according to the Thai Chana platform.

 

As of now, two staff of the Rayong hotel in which the 43-year-old Egyptian soldier stayed have been quarantined, the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration revealed today (July 14).

 

A Department of Disease Control (DDC) investigation team visited all areas the group of Egyptians went to, especially the Laem Thong department store.

 

A data check of the virus-alert Thai Chana platform showed that 394 people visited the department store on July 10 at the time the Egyptian soldier was there.

 

Digital Economy and Society Ministry inspector-general Dr Polawat Witoolkollachit said the Thai Chana platform under the DDC confirmed within three hours who visited the store on July 10 from 11am to 3pm – the approximate time that the soldier and his group were at the store.

 

Of the 394 people, two cannot be contacted because they may have entered the wrong phone number or deliberately used fake numbers.

 

The Rayong Public Health Office, which is under the Office of Disease Prevention and Control Region 6, is responsible for personally contacting those deemed at risk and instructing them to take a free Covid-19 test.

 

Those who did not use the Thai Chana platform while visiting the department store on July 10 are instructed to immediately contact the Department of Disease Control via Hotline 1422 or the Rayong Public Health Office.

400 possible infections and that's all they can account for at the mall.  Wow, just think of the super spreader news coming to a news outlet near you soon..

I have been to many Malls where people just stream in without checking in. I made an official complaint to one such Mall and they actually thanked me and told me that if I had reported them to the local health authorities that they would have been closed for a week and fined 400 000 baht. The next time I visited the Mall they had 3 people checking every one coming in. Those who checked in using Thai Chana had to show their phones to prove they had actually used them to check in.

Covid should be taken serious, but if they continue this procedures after every new case, they won`t get back to normal until 2022.

They will only continue like this until there's a widespread outbreak, at that point they will do what all other countries did....just treat when it shows up at the hospital.
