After a TV anchor tested positive on Friday morning, Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) spokesman Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin announced that he and his team may be at risk.

 

The National Broadcasting Services (NBT) TV anchor usually helps the CCSA team during their daily press briefing.

 

Taweesin said he will take a Covid-19 test in the afternoon and then go into isolation.

 

Mobile biosafety units will also be sent to the NBT building to test everybody inside. So far, there is no information on who may be at high risk.

How incredibly unlucky. With so few cases in Bangkok, what are the chances of that...

The CCSA, does anyone actually believe the statistics they produce? 2 weeks ago the village boss announced over the PA system that there was a person with Covid admitted to the main hospital near us,

They need to start testing more than those that show up at a hospital with symptoms and if course the entire Samut Sakhon Area and factories like they are currently doing.  This right here is an indic

good way , even for 9 cases in BKK, assistant of my sister in law went to samut sakhon 3 days before christmas. So , sister in law (and all her team) stayed in quarantine for 14 days . Strange christmas this year  but we have to do to preserve this country safe.

It is quite possible that several TVF members have COVID right now and aren't even aware of it. Should widespread testing start, I would assume they would be packed up and sent to private hospitals at their own expense. Last time I accepted lodging at a private hospital, that was about 20,000 baht per day. Wonder what such action would do to financial stability of foreigners found infected.

So your point being what Don't test, Don't Tell, and what else, Expats do not have insurance to cover hospital costs....well now, isn;t that a pickle we are in....

Not at all. I fully agree with testing of entire population, and much harsher penalties for those crossing border illegally. Like North Korea style penalties for illegal border crossing. Just pointing out that should this happen, some members of this forum could be in trouble if forced hospitalised at own expense.

We live close to a major Cambodian/Tha border crossing, the Cambodians that have recently returned to Cambodia are being put in isolation for 2 weeks, I wonder why that might be?

Cambodia is not the only country where you have to quarantene when you enter the country. You know ?
Why does everyone have to quarantene who comes to Thailand ?
