BANGKOK, Dec 3 (TNA) — Deputy Prime Minister/Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said the new COVID-19 situation was under control and there had not been the second wave of the disease but more measures to ease lockdowns must be delayed.

 

He was responding to concerns resulting from 10 COVID-infected Thai women who returned from work in Myanmar’s Tachileik border town opposite Chiang Rai province, dodged quarantine at the border and traveled inside the country.

 

“The present situation is controllable and it is not the second wave. Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai do not need a lockdown. Transmission has been contained but the time for lockdown easing must be put off pending evaluation of situations in border areas,” Mr Anutin said.

Health authorities expressed confidence today that the Covid-19 situation in the northern provinces of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai are under control despite the recent return of 10 Thais from neighbouring Myanmar who tested positive.

 

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul, meanwhile, played down fears that there could be a second wave of the pandemic. However, a medical expert warned that the country needs to be put on high alert for a potential second wave of the pandemic following what happened in the two provinces.

 

Speaking at a press conference, Dr Kiatiphume Wongrajit, the permanent secretary of the Public Health Ministry, said local health officials had all necessary information regarding the returnees’ whereabouts and timelines of their movement.

Being cynical, I'm guessing that photo of A-nut-in here has the mask photo shopped on? I've hardly seen him wearing one before.

As usual it looks pristine.  It has never been in his back pocket for everyday use!
