A resident of Myanmar’s border town Tachileik claims a recent Covid-19 outbreak spread at sex venue parading as a hotel. 10 Thai women tested positive for the coronavirus after returning from Tachileik where they had worked. Some confirmed they worked at the 1G1 Hotel in the border town.

Tachileik resident Moon Saing told Coconuts Bangkok that the virus spread at the 1G1 Hotel after a group of “fat military generals” from Yangon, where infections continue to rise, had sex with Thai women working at the venue.

“It’s 5,000 THB per session and some charge 10,000 THB to bring home.”

While that’s the only claim reported on hostesses at 1G1 Hotel offering sex services, a Facebook page that appears to be linked to the hotel advertises jobs for “beautiful women.” One post offers a 3 day position to earn 30,000 baht, saying the “entertainment” job has “high class business customers.”

The Facebook page was created in 2016 and named ร้าน 1G1 7Hotel งานพม่า งานท่าขี้เหล็ก งานเชียงราย, meaning jobs in Myanmar, Chiang Rai and at the 1G1 hotel. The name was changed a few days ago, taking out 1G1 hotel, according to Facebook page transparency information.

Another Facebook page under the 1G1 name links to a modeling website based in Bangkok’s Lat Phrao area.

      It appears that while posting to The Thaiger, gosport was smoking crack sprinkled with LSD while using Blackberry phone.

    Strange how the very few Thai people who work in Burma happen to be sex workers whereas there are many hundreds of thousands of Burmese working in Thailand of whom there are very few sex workers, it says something about their cultural differences.

    Who is this Tachileik resident Moon Saing, a competitor of 1G1 perhaps? And why does he or she feel compelled to state the obvious? Nothing to see here. Move along.

“I’ll go first!”

Thailand’s Public Health Minister has repeated his pledge to be the first person to receive the Covid-19 vaccine, in a bid to allay people’s concerns. Questions have been raised about the Chinese-manufactured Sinovac Biotech jab after its effectiveness rating was revised downwards by researchers in Brazil.

Anutin Charnvirakul says the vaccine process will be overseen by Sophon Mekthon from the Ministry of Public Health and all safety criteria will be met. The Pattaya News reports that the minister says he has confidence in the safety of the vaccine and is willing to prove it by being the first person to get the jab. It’s not the first time he has made this suggestion but there has been no official confirmation that the Health Minister will be first in line.

Thailand has ordered 2 million doses of the vaccine, with the first 200,000 expected to arrive next month. The government has also ordered 26 million doses of a Covid-19 vaccine produced by AstraZeneca in partnership with Oxford University but is not expected to take delivery of that vaccine until the middle of the year.

Pattaya City mayor planning local rollout of Covid-19 vaccine

The mayor of Pattaya city says officials hope to be able to buy 240,000 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine for administration to local residents. Sonthaya Khunpluem is reviewing finances and plans to set aside approximately 80 million baht for vaccine procurement, subject to government approval.

“Currently, house registration of Pattaya City has reached a total population of 120,000 people, then we would need about 240,000 shots of the vaccine. If the price of the supplied vaccine was approximately 300 baht, Pattaya would need a budget of at least 72 million baht in order to cover all the residents in the city.”

The move comes following confirmation from the government that local authorities could purchase their own vaccines in order to speed up the process. A number of other local authorities have also said they intend to do the same. The government has stipulated that only vaccines approved by the Food and Drug Administration can be purchased.

Sonthaya hopes that by vaccinating Pattaya residents, tourism in the area could get a boost and the economic recovery could begin. The Pattaya News reports that officials from the Pattaya City Finance Office and other relevant agencies have met to review projects planned for the year ahead, to determine Pattaya’s spending power for buying vaccines.

It’s understood the vaccine would be offered to local residents for free, but what is not known is if that includes foreign residents. Officials have also not confirmed when the rollout is expected to begin, or which vaccine would be used.

Deputy national police chief Damrongsak Kittiprapas has confirmed that arrest warrants are being sought for 8 civilians implicated in the illegal smuggling of migrant workers. The Bangkok Post reports that the 8 face charges of aiding and abetting illegal immigration. The workers were trafficked from Myanmar to the central Thai province of Samut Sakhon, where the latest outbreak of Covid-19 began last month. 20 police officers are also being investigated for their role in the smuggling operation. They have been suspended from duty pending a full investigation. It’s thought there are up to 25 police officers suspected of involvement.

“After tracing the migrant workers’ route into Samut Sakhon and then jobs at its shrimp market, we found that most received direct assistance from more than 20 police officials and eight civilians. They smuggled the workers across the border in Sangkhla Buri district of Kanchanaburi and then provided transport to get them to Samut Sakhon.”

Damrongsak says an investigative committee is being set up prior to criminal prosecution and disciplinary action being taken against the police officers involved.

“A formal fact-finding procedure will be carried out before both disciplinary and legal action is pursued against them.”

The committee, which is being chaired by the assistant national police chief, will work with a separate panel set up by the government to investigate the role of police officers in people smuggling. The committee is mostly made up of police officers. Damrongsak says PM Prayut Chan-o-cha insists that investigating officers carry out their duties in an honest and transparent manner.
