Yesterday, Dr Thaweesin Wissanuyothin, the spokesman for the centre announced that “a health official who coordinated between the Covid-19 response centre at Government House and the Public Health Ministry is confirmed to be infected with the virus.”

Thaweesin, said that the official was only a coordinator and was not involved in the treatment of people infected with the virus.

“The official is a male, 46 years old, and is on record as having participated in several meetings. He fell sick on March 26, with mild symptoms like a runny nose with occasional coughing but without a fever. The man first thought he had an allergy.”

“Three days after becoming sick he went for testing. There he was confirmed infected with Covid-19 on March 29,” according to Bangkok Post.

“The official attended several meetings. As a coordinator who was not assigned to work permanently at Government House, he kept travelling in and out of buildings. Therefore, officials at the Covid-19 response centre are considered to be at low risk potentials, but are still required to self-quarantine.”

“Those considered at-risk are officials at the Public Health Ministry and about 30 other officials who had close contact with the infected man. All must also go into self-quarantine at their homes.”
