Yesterday, PM Prayut Chan-o-cha chaired a meeting with the Coronary Centre for Disease Infection Management 2019 (Covid-19) at Santi Maitri building behind Government House. One of the matters discussed was the postponement of national holidays. The matter was going to be presented to today’s cabinet meeting.

The holidays that were going to be cancelled or postponed included…

  • Friday, May 1, 2020, Labour Day,
  • Monday 4 May 2020, Coronation Day,
  • Wednesday 6 May 2020, Visakha Puja Day,
  • May 11, Plowing Day.

But today’s cabinet meeting said they ‘disapprove’ of the postponement or cancellation of the Thai national holidays in May.

But a spokesperson for the Cabinet told the public to stay at home and refrain from travelling out of their provinces, fearing that they may take extended leave, from May 1-6, to vacation upcountry and celebrate the holidays.

Phuket’s bars and entertainment industry closes up shop | The Thaiger

Shutters down today in Phuket. Well, officially anyway. Bars, clubs and entertainment venues on the island will now remain closed for at least 14 days in the island’s latest efforts to curb the spread of Covid-19. Phuket’s Governor Phakaphong Tavipatana made the formal announcement yesterday after 24 hours of conjecture and confusion.

The Phuket Communicable Disease Committee resolved to issue an order for temporary closure starting from yesterday.

The move is a national roll out following the Thai Cabinet’s resolution on Tuesday at their weekly meeting ordering temporary closure of entertainment venues in Bangkok and Greater Bangkok for 14 days.

“Entertainment venues” includes Thai traditional massage parlours and movie theatres. The local resolution has now been handed out to entertainment venue operators across Phuket.

The Governor said local venues would be able to request a review in their circumstances but would need “valid reasons to stay open”. The Governor also stressed that Phuket continues to screen all visitors arriving at the airport and sea ports.

Under the emergency decree that has been announced by PM Prayut Chan-o-cha, it has been confirmed that Songkran (the traditional Thai new year festival) is officially postponed this year to lessen the spread of the Covid-19outbreak. However, 4 teenagers defying the emergency decree was arrested in Roi Et province, far north-eastern Thailand, after live broadcasting their water wars. The teenagers got a bit more publicity that they were looking for when their spontaneous broadcast went instantly viral.

The group of partying teenagers was splashing water at each other while drinking consuming alcohol all for everyone to see, including the police. They kept laughing and making comments that they weren’t afraid of the law and didn’t care about the emergency decree. Despite the live video getting plenty of strong backlash from the online community they continued to violate the emergency decree and enjoy their mini celebration.

Investigators figured out that the incident took place in Les Phume District, Roi Et Province and one of the teenagers named Tee, was an employee at the Phon Thong Subdistrict Administrative Organisation. He is also reportedly the son of Mister Karn, the Vice Chairman of the SAO, where his father had brought him in to work as a temporary employee (now probably more temporary than originally anticipated).

Tee and his friends boasted online that one of their fathers was a ‘big shot’ in the local community and no one would be brave enough to mess with him.

Shortly after the live broadcast, local officials and police from the Les Phume District went to meet with the Chief Executive of the SAO, Chumpon Mayotha where they were told to go to meet at the Vice Chairman’s home to talk about his son.

No one was at home when authorities arrived. Local villagers say that Tee and his family had fled from the village.

Back in Phon Thong, officials at Police Station arrested the other 3 teenagers who were also involved in the live broadcast, all of them tested positive to illicit drugs and alcohol.
