PHUKET: Phuket Vice Governor Piyapong Choowong has made a special plea for residents in Phuket’s Muang District to take steps to prevent themselves from being infected with COVID-19, and especially follow what he called the three “iron rules” of preventing the virus from spreading.

 

Vice Governor Piyapong’s plea came in a special video released yesterday (Apr 14), when there were 98 confirmed cases of people infected with COVID-19 on the island.

 

The Phuket Provincial Public Health Office (PPHO) last night confirmed that the number of COVID-19 infections in Phuket had risen to 112.

This is the Phuket forum, the article is from The Phuket News and the speaker is the  Phuket Vice Governor.

If you are looking for general discussion on the pandemic try the specific covid forum or the local forum for the region where your interest lies.

Did you really need to tell him that? Obviously

Was interested in the Three Iron Rules the Phuket Vice Governor mentioned to prevent the virus from spreading.  So I looked it up in the article.

“Maintain social distancing, wash your hands often, wear masks,” Vice Governor Piyapong said.

"Please, brothers and sisters, take intensive care of yourselves. When leaving the house, always wear a mask. When entering the community, keep some distance [from other people]. And always wash your hands with alcohol,” he added.

“Such measures are iron rules that everyone has to follow in strict accordance because the Phuket Health Medical team is working hard to fight COVID-19,” Vice Governor Piyapong said.

“At this time I would like my brothers and sisters to spend as much time at home as possible. If there is no important business, please do not go anywhere,” V/Gov Piyapong added.

He's obviously referring to metal amulets, three being a lucky number of them to wear.

This is a good example - telling the virus to point itself elsewhere.

Send the same message to the entertainment industry... they allow this to happen.

Why not on the front?

Most probably because a lot of the "powers that be" here in Phuket have a finger in the entertainment industry pie, so to speak, either by a circuitous ownership route, or by collecting monthly dues, so it's in their best interests to allow as much of the entertainment industry to open, as they possibly can.

 

Without the backing of these people, no one in the entertainment industry would be allowed to open.

It's time to get an effective vaccine rolled out.

 

Thailand was lucky not to have a very large first wave. It needs to vaccinate hard and fast to stop Covid spread.
