Thailand’s northern province of Chiang Rai has been declared safe and free of COVID-19 infections, as everyone who had been in close contact with an infected person were traced and screened, with no new cases being reported.

 

The Chiang Rai governor, Prajon Prachsakul, issued the declaration after the provincial communicable diseases committee met yesterday, to assess the latest COVID-19 situation in the province. The committee agreed that there should be an announcement to declare the province free from COVID-19 infections.

 

According to the CCSA, 64 COVID-19 cases, linked to Myanmar’s Thachilek Township, have been recorded, of which 55 were in Chiang Rai.

I wish all provinces would do minimal testing and be declared Covid-19 free and then no need for further testing.  

People who go to hospitals with high-temperature and loss of taste will be treated and released - but no need for testing because Covid-19 free.

 

It is damaging Thailand reputation of controlling Covid-19.

 

I hope Bangkok will do the same thing - stop causing problems with testing and reporting

Yeah, I think the governor has been sipping a little too much of the Sangsom while at work.  With such a porous border in that area I hardly think that Covid-19 has been eradicated that quickly.  Plus just others from within Thailand travelling there.
