The government is now encouraging people to help report activities deemed to violate the government’s rules and regulations to curb the spread of Covid-19 by calling the national hotline at 1111. People can report on any violations set by the Emergency Decree, which has been in place since last year and extended numerous times to combat the coronavirus.

The government says people can call the hotline for major violations, like labour trafficking across Thailand’s porous border with Myanmar, which is said to have led to the new wave of infections affecting a large migrant community in Samut Sakhon. People can also phone in the hotline for minor violations, even like gatherings that don’t abide by disease control measures.

According to the government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri, hundreds of citizens were reported violating the Covid-19 restriction measures and laws despite the Emergency Decree.

The hotline is open for the report of the alleged Covid-19 violations and also general complaints related to Covid-19 situations. All complaints and reports are expected to be fully investigated by agencies in charge and all information of callers will be kept confidential. Service for English speakers is available upon request.

Since being set up, the hotline has received a total of 32,008 inquiries and general questions so far.

    Nice! Hotlines in other places worked like a charm as well, lets ask the public to rat out there neighbours for having to many visits or aren’t wearing there face diaper properly..

    These kind of things will only incide more violence and division among the ordinary folks that can hardly live life already now

    Here’s an better idea, How about you open another hotline where people can call in the corruption and other heinous crimes that police, politicians and other officials get involved in on a daily basis, and actually for a change push thru with hefty punishments and or jail time instead of putting those crooks on payed non active duties like usuall

    Yeah. About time.

    Turn the Thai people into a bunch of grassers, pointing fingers at their neighbours, their business competition, their former employers or lovers.

    If it works, maybe we can move onto something meatier, like corrupt public officials, BiB, immigration officers and school administrators.

    It’s just the tip of the iceberg.

        Sorry Slugger, and I know I am going off-piste slightly, but I think that only people who accept corruption as the normal way of doing things would say such a thing. One single act of corruption by public officials like the police, border officers and administrators, is one too many as it undermines public trust in the (so called) leaders. As it would have a definite target group to aim for, as opposed to a covid one which aims at everybody, an anti-corruption hotline works for me, because an acceptance of corruption is just as bad as being corrupt.

    This is the beginning of Communism just like China! This is sad how Thailand has become. Thailand was survived taken over by many wars but finally will come to an end of freedom!! May God protect Thailand!!!

    Yet another probably well intentioned but ultimately wholly bad idea that has not been fully thought through. Isn’t this how Pol Pot and other Dictators maintained power, encouraging children to turn their parents in, and setting neighbour against neighbour? So sad when ordinary people are encouraged to spy on their neighbours.

    If I leave my house in Bang Saray without wearing a mask I will get fined if found. In the public park next door many Thai people congregating and not one had a mask !! They are playing games and there is no social distancing whatsoever. Please explain how this can continue without any intervention ?
