PHUKET:-- Four official teams have been established to monitor and examine Myanmar workers entering Phuket in an effort to curb illegal immigration and control any threat of the COVID-19 coronavirus entering the island.


Phuket Vice Governor Phichet Panaphong revealed the news during a meeting of the Communicable Disease Committee held at Phuket Provincial Hall yesterday (Sept 28).


V/Gov Phichet explained that a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has broken out in Rakhine state in the west of Myanmar, a situation that could lead to concerned people there attempting to flee overseas, therefore significantly increasing illegal immigrant numbers.

It would be far easier to punish business owners who have illegal immigrants working for them.


But it would put a bad light on Thailand, can not. Better just blame the illegal workers without any further looking in to it.
