“Families that have 3 or more people who are willing to donate blood, authorities will be sending mobile units that will visit homes in the main city area of Khon Kaen province today.” This from Dr Sujira Kwasaen, director of The Khon Kaen Regional Health Promotion Centre 7.

The Khon Kaen Regional Health Promotion Centre 7 is working with The Khon Kaen Hospital to send mobile units to collect blood from donors whilst they are at home.

“Local residents can contact the Regional Health Promotion Centre, and we will send a vehicle to their homes, though these mobile units are small, they meet the standard at every process.”

“Before taking donations, the doctor will screen the donors and also find out if the donors have had any close contact with Covid-19 patients.”

“Khon Kaen Hospital has to use blood to treat emergency patients or those who have blood diseases like thalassemia. The hospital already has more than 200 such patients.“

But with the restriction of the Covid-19 outbreak, the hospital’s bloodstock is currently in jeopardy. Normally, 200 units of blood are kept in stock and the hospital uses 120 units of blood every day.

A woman in the north-eastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima has allegedly been shot dead by her husband because she wanted a divorce. It’s alleged the man then turned the gun on himself, dying from a gunshot wound to the head.

Police officers called to a property in the sub-district of Thephalai found the bodies of 46 year old Mongkhol Aksorn, and his 34 year old wife, Saifon Aksorn, who was face down in a pool of blood. According to a report in Nation Thailand, an acquaintance of Saifon’s informed police that the woman wanted to leave her husband for another man. When she asked Mongkhol for a divorce, it’s understood he took her car and drove away. He subsequently returned to the property, which is when the shooting is believed to have taken place.

According to a neighbour who heard the gun shots, the couple argued frequently.

“Yesterday, they fought about a car that belonged to Saifon, but which Mongkhol had borrowed. He drove off in the car and returned a short while later, when I heard several gunshots from their house.”

The police investigation is ongoing.

A 19 year old man faces charges of intent to murder for allegedly shooting and killing a teenage girl. The man told police he shot the gun in the sky and did not intend to harm anyone. The stray bullet went through the girl’s heart and also injured her friend.

16 year old Nutthicha Thanthaisong was riding home on a motorcycle from an event in the Isaan province Buriram while a group of teenagers were allegedly firing off guns. A bullet hit her back and exited through her heart, killing her. Her 19 year old friend driving the motorcycle was also injured by the bullet. Nation Thailand says he is being treated, but did not report on the details of his injury.

Police questioned 19 year old Natthakit Boonluea after receiving reports from 6 of the man’s friends saying he shot the teenage girl. Natthakit told police he shot the gun in the sky and did not aim it at the girl.

Police say they believe more people were shooting off guns and plan to question around 50 people that may have been involved in the shooting.

8 Roi-et volunteers killed, 33 injured in bus crash at Nakhon Ratchasima | The Thaiger

7 people have been killed and another 33 injured when a tour bus collided into the back of an 18 wheeler trailer truck in Nakhon Ratchasima early yesterday, on the way to Pattaya. The double decker was travelling on the Nakhon Ratchasima-Kabin Buri road in the Chaimongkhol subdistrict just before 4am Saturday morning when the incident happened. The truck and the bus collided at an intersection. All 8 killed were health volunteers from Roi-et. Police say it appears that the bus was speeding at the time when it smashed into the back of the truck.

When police arrived they found the trailer truck, with Lopburi licence plates, and the double decker bus, which had rolled over onto its side. Emergency responders report that the bus was carrying 40 passengers. Out of those 7 died in the collision and 33 were injured. The injured were rushed to district hospitals.

A preliminary police review of the incident reports that the tour bus was transporting a group of health volunteers from Roi Et (north east) province back home from their trip to Pattaya, Chonburi province (Central Thailand). The driver of the trailer truck driver told police that the bus was speeding and crashed into the rear of his truck.

Police are continuing their investigation, checking CCTV and interviewing witnesses to determine the cause of the incident.
