No need for further lockdowns in Thailand: Anutin

Public health minister, Anutin Charnvirakul said that despite the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in northern Thailand, there is no need to implement further lockdowns - either local or national. 


Speaking on Saturday morning the minister was asked about the COVID-19 situation in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, which has seen an increase in infections after several Thai nationals infected with the virus entered Thailand illegally from neighbouring Myanmar, bypassing the mandatory quarantine requirements.


The minister said that precautionary measures are in place and that all provincial hospitals, medical personnel and other relevant agencies are on standby and ready to cope with any emergency. Because of this there is no need to lockdown the country or any provinces, Anutin said. 


Mr Anutin added that measures will be put in place to facilitate the repatriation of Thai workers in Tachilek in order to try and eliminate more and more people from crossing into the country illegally.


Mr Anutin also said that events in the country, particularly over the New Year season should should not be cancelled and should go ahead as planned,


He did however say that people should continue to be on their guard regarding COVID-19. 


Anyone attending such events should be required to wear a mask and have their temperature checked prior to entering the event.

Not sure why but it's like I can't find myself to take anything seriously from this man. Rather so, just wait to see what actually happens...

I'm not surprised you can't take anything seriously from him. It's ironic that a health minster seems to suffer from foot-in-mouth disease.

they'll just ban alcohol instead if numbers start to rise
