    Dear Editor,
    Greetings.
    Thank you for sharing daily updates on COVID-19 infection cases in Thailand. However, in today’s update (Wednesday 16 Dec)…I humbly believed the picture on the header is misleading showing London Heathrow Airport but description is related to detected cases in Thailand’s Quarantine;-(
    Regards
