    It’s a trap.
    The visitor pays all the expenses to stay in Thailand. Has not got the virus.
    But the Thais declare them contagious, and put them in an expensive hospital for the necessary operation. The surgital extraction of money from their wallets.
    There are NO independent virus tests. No second opinion.

    Why do I get the sneaking suspicion that the cases you are discovering were caught in quarantine??

      No I did not write that.
      The ferang can be grabbed anywhere.
      Like they used to grab ferangs for littering in Bangkok.
      It was only a cigarette butt, but it was an easy source of income for the police.
      Littering!!!
      A ferang will be targeted now in Thailand.
      There are so few of them they are prize turkeys for a fine.

        So …. “ferangs” are just being “grabbed anywhere” off the street and tested for Covid-19?

        Really?

      Where else would they be discovered, that’s were they are taken too directly from the airport, it’s the reason they are taken there for 14 days quarantine, to prevent the virus entering the country.

    Meanwhile Thailand refuses to test citizens in Thailand. A 80+ year old citizen with severe flu like symptoms was not tested for covid because “there is no covid19 in his living area” according to the doctor. Uhuh…

      Sorry, Harry, but far from refusing to test its citizens as you suggest, everybody admitted to hospital in Thailand is automatically tested for Covid-19 regardless of whether they’re Thais, farangs, or anything else.

      What’s the source of your information?

6 more Thai women, who crossed the Myanmar border into Chiang Rai, have tested positive for Covid-19, according to the Public Health Ministry. 4 other Thai women in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai recently tested positive after returning from Myanmar’s Tachileik district. All 10 women evaded the mandatory 14 quarantine.

Some cases trace back to the 1G1 hotel and entertainment venue in Tachileik where some of the women confirm that they worked, stayed or visited. Some women said they worked at hotels or bars in Tachileik, but reports do not name the establishments.

Case 1

A 28 year old woman went to work at the 1G1 venue in early November and returned on November 27. A motorbike driver picked her up at the border and took her to the Chiang Rai’s Mae Sai district bus station. She then took a bus back to her home in Phayao.

She went grocery shopping, out to restaurants and to a beer garden. She drove to Chiang Mai and tested positive for Covid-19 on November 30 at a private hospital. She returned to her hometown to be treated at the Phayao Hospital.

Case 2 & 3

After crossing the Thai-Myanmar border on November 28, a 21 year old and 25 year old flew from Chiang Rai to Bangkok’s Don Mueang Airport. The 25 year old then flew to Phichit to visit a friend where she went to local bars. The 21 year old tested positive for Covid-19 yesterday.

Following her friend’s positive result, the 25 year old was “caught” an taken to a quarantine facility where she tested positive, according to Nation Thailand.

Case 4

A 36 year old travelled to Tachileik on November 3 and visited the 1G1 entertainment venue on November 23 and 24. A couple days later, she developed symptoms of a cough, runny nose and body ache. She treated her symptoms with over the counter drugs and crossed the natural border into Thailand on November 30 with help from a Myanmar national.

The woman travelled to Chiang Mai and then took a flight to Bangkok’s Don Mueang Airport. She took a taxi form the airport to the Mo Chit Bus Terminal and then took a bus to Ratchaburi.

After hearing about a friend tested positive for Covid-19, the woman went to a local hospital and tested positive for the virus today.

Cases 5 & 6

A 23 year old and a 35 year old worked in Tachileik and returned to Thailand on November 24. They travelled to Chiang Mai and then went to their home in Tak’s Mae Sot district.

After hearing about a friend testing positive, the women got tested and the results came out positive for Covid-19.

Previous local Covid-19 cases

A woman in Chiang Mai and 3 other women in Chiang Rai tested positive for Covid-19 after working in Tachileik. They allegedly entered Thailand illegally, dodging the mandatory 14 day quarantine.

The women could face charges for entering Thailand illegally and violating the Emergency Decree. Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul says he’s asked authorities to press charges “to the fullest extent of the law.”

97 police officers investigated for fiddling Covid-19 payments

97 police officers, from 41 police stations, are currently being investigated for an alleged scam involving Covid-19 payments meant for officers who worked extra shifts during the crisis. The case was assigned by national police chief Suwat Jangyodsuk in November, when it came to light that some officers may have fraudulently claimed allowances meant for others.

In one incident, an officer responsible for transferring extra payments to police on the southern island of Phuket transferred the money to his own accountant instead. At the time, the transfer was dismissed as a mistake (in his favour), with the officer in question receiving a warning, and payments then made to the qualifying officers.

Wissanu Prasatthong-Osot from the National Internal Affairs Police says the investigation should reach a conclusion within the next 10 days.

“The result of the investigation should be ready in 10 days. Currently, 97 officers in 41 police stations ranging from non-commissioned to generals are under investigation for being involved in the swindle. The bureau aims to provide justice to all policemen involved. After the investigation concludes, the victims will receive their full allowance, while the offending officers will be punished under the law and disciplinary standards.”

Nation Thailand reports that a full list of alleged offenders has been sent to Suwat, with Wissanu promising that none will escape prosecution.

“The National Police chief had also ordered the transfer of offending officers at the commander and sub-commander levels out of their areas as per the investigation procedures.”
