Ministry of Public Health advises public to keep eye on their health this winter

The Thai Ministry of Public Health is advising the general public to keep an eye on their health in winter as familiar flu-like symptoms could be from Covid-19. Such concerns were also echoed by The Department of Disease Control as an increase in such common cold and flu cases could signal the possible spread of the novel coronavirus.

It further warns that those who are experiencing fevers, coughs, sore throats, respiratory symptoms, or a loss of taste or smell after visiting a crowded area, should immediately put on a mask, and seek medical attention.

The Ministry also is warning everyone to be careful when handling possible virus-contaminated parcels after concerns have grown over reports in other countries indicating Covid-19 has been found on packages. They stress the public to wash hands after handling any parcels and clean the packaging with alcohol when possible. Those who are receiving the parcel from a delivery person should also wear a mask to prevent the possible spreading of the virus if present.

The warning has been published by the Ministry of Public Health and is merely re-published as a public service. Thailand has had a total of 3,866 cases reported of Covid-19 and 60 registered deaths. 114 people are currently hospitalised for treatment of Covid-19.

    TheThaiger, your lame Covid articles are so boring. We dont care about this flu overblown by the media. You either stop this Covid BS or people will stop visiting this site, thus making your advertisement less profitable.

    Winter, sure. Its getting damn cold here in the next few months in LOScam. My wife already took her fur out of the closet to be prepared for minus temperatures.

    ahhh, and read this carefully

    ”Those who are receiving the parcel from a delivery person should also wear a mask to prevent the possible spreading of the virus if present.”

    Hmmm, so we do not know if the virus is present or not, maybe it never existed….

    Just maintain good food (as much as naturally based vitamins A & D) and with some exercise. Be it walking, cycling etc.
    Stay away from junk food, slobbery and TV! 😉

      there is no such thing as a vitamin that will prevent you from getting a virus. There is no such thing as a proper diet that will prevent you from getting a virus. No amount of exercise will prevent you from getting a virus. No amount of junk food will make you more susceptible to contracting a virus. lastly, stop getting your medical information from tabloids.

    Excellent advice from the Ministry of Health. Also, the Ministry of Transport advises anyone who wishes to embark on inter-provincial travel to use the bus or the train. Whilst the Ministry of Education advises anyone who wishes to gain high-salaried employment to apply for a place at university and study for an appropriate degree. Lol Lol Lol
