Thailand Post has successfully delivered nearly 28 million hygienic masks to the Interior and Public Health ministries over the past month. Nearly 16.8 million were sent to the Ministry of Public Health to be redistributed to provincial public health departments and 99 hospitals nationwide, while another 11 million masks were delivered to the Ministry of Interior to be distributed to 77 cities across the nation.

This comes as welcome news as many provinces throughout Thailand have suffered shortages of masks for healthcare workers as well as citizens who have increasingly faced mandatory wearing of face masks. Large scale corruption has blossomed around the country with the supply not exceeding the demand and plenty of people trying to take advantage of the current situation.

Hopefully the mass delivery of masks will now provide residents with greater protection and vital health workers the tools they need.
