Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha

 

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha today came out to apologise over the case of a visiting Egyptian soldier who was allowed to roam Rayong city before being found to be infected with Covid-19 virus.

 

He added that as the head of the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, he regretted the incident and took full responsibility.

 

The 43-year-old Egyptian soldierlanded at Rayong’s U-Tapao Airport last Wednesday along with a delegation of 30 who were on their way to China on unexplained military business. They were not confined to their Rayong hotel and visited a shopping mall. On Sunday, the soldier’s Covid-19 test came back positive.

 

Prayuth admitted the case should never have happened, and said he had instructed the CCSA toreviewall relaxed measures, and ensure tight rules apply for all incoming and departing flights.

 

Prayut also asked Thais to remain confident in the country's public health system.

 

He added that the incident will not lead to a return of Thailand’s full lockdown but would boost efforts to plug loopholes in disease control.

A story plenty of inconsistencies and unanswered questions.

Did the Chinese test them for Covid-19 too? If yes, same results?

How is it possible that in the army with no 24/7 physical distancing only one is infected?

 

My conclusion: the Covid-19 part of this story is staged!

The question is how many have avoided the presumably mandatory 14 day isolation through influence? Resign! There's already the two tiered fees for thais and non Thais, now the elite v the rest! Not just here!

Full responsibility, hey? So if many others get infected from this incident, will you finally resign?

my question is when the world is in lockdown why is the army travelling to all different countries repeatedly. Side business perhaps? Hercules planes fly over my house from myanmar to utapoa occasionally in the middle of the night without lights on. whats going on?
