Today the cabinet has approved a proposed new stimulus measures of at least 117 billion baht. Trying to minimise the magnitude of the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak that has infected more than 800 Thais across the country. The stimulus will include cash handouts worth 45 billion baht for more than 3 million workers outside of the social security system, soft loans worth 60 billion baht and tax breaks.

Separately, small firms will be offered 10 billion baht of loans while the government will also delay business tax payments for companies to help boost their liquidity.

Deputy Thai PM Somkid Jatusripitak, says..

“The measures announced today should be sufficient for now, however there will be another package of stimulus… to help farmers affected by drought and to spur the economy.”

“Earlier this month the government has also approved a stimulus to inject 400 billion baht to the economy, many other stimulus will be proposed to the cabinet on their weekly meets and hopefully the economy can revive as it is the lowest it has been in the past 5 years.”

Thailand enters ’emergency mode’ on Thursday March 26. PM Prayut Chan-o-cha also announced that it will hopefully only last until the end of April “and not any longer than it needs to be”.

The hospital director in Songkla, Dr. Supat Hasuwankit, posted on his Facebook page today, that it was a happy moment for 6 patients and their families after having been in hospital since March 17t fighting against the deadly Coronavirus, to finally go home.

“The group had been to Malaysia, to attend a religious ceremony earlier this month, which is where they contracted the disease. Although they have been allowed to return home, it is advised that all 6 patients have to strictly social distance themselves for at least a week, including sleeping in separate rooms, wearing face masks all the time while outside and eat separately from the rest of their families.”

“Covid-19 can be treated within 14 days. The most important thing is the friendliness and no stigmatisation of the patients, and to maintain social distancing.”

“Currently the hospital now has no Covid-19 patients.”

On another note, in the neighbouring province of Pattani, the Prince of Songkhla University has made available a hostel on the campus to accommodate 57 Thai students returning from Pakistan, who have residences in Pattani.

A train passenger found dead yesterday in the province of Prachuap Khiri Khan, about 240 kilometres south of Bangkok, has tested positive for Covid-19 coronavirus. The 57 year old man, who was not named, was found dead in front of a restroom after his train from Bangkok to Narathiwat in the far South stopped for a rest break, according to authorities.

The victim was diabetic and was returning from a trip to Pakistan. He was allowed to board the train on Monday after a guard measured his temperature at 36 degrees.

Despite finding no fever, the guard asked the passenger to rest before travelling as he was suffering from a headache and vomiting. The man refused.

Tests on the body at Songkhla hospital came back positive for Covid-19 today.

Eight personnel on the train were sent home for 14 days of self-quarantine whilst another 10 passengers were sent to the Public Health Ministry for testing and observation.

The train has been disinfected and cleaned thoroughly.
