Does anyone wear a face mask at the bar? How about social distancing? With people ready to party for the long weekend, Pattaya Police are reminding entertainment venues to continue to use coronavirus preventative measures. That means those at a nightclub or bar need to keep 6 feet apart, if the venue owners enforce the rules.

Police held a meeting with more than 100 entertainment venue owners in the city yesterday. Around the same time, health officials announced what appears to be the first local transmission of the coronavirus in the past 100 days at a Bangkok prison.

Police Chief Khemmarin Pitsamai say local entertainment venues have been following preventative measures, for the most part, but not “100%.” He says face masks still need to be worn and people need to check in at each bar and club. Venue owners are told to enforce social distancing and limit the number of people seated at tables.

Khemmarin says the city must strictly continue measures aimed at preventing the spread of the disease and police will crackdown on those who break the emergency decree. Venue operators caught violating the decree face up to 2 years in prison and an up to 40,000 baht fine. Those who break the disease control law under the Communicable Disease Act face up to a year in prison and a fine of up to 100,000 baht.

“If any of them missed one of the measurements, we will verbally talk to them first. If they missed it for the second time we will take legal action which may include fines or other penalties.”

    Just a greedy copper setting up a justification for collecting fine, with a “I warned you.”
    Who is contagious now? certainly not felangs.
    There is no need for distancing and masks. But the cops hang on to the chances of fines.
    The same as the government hang onto their emergency powers.
    When is this farce going to end!

    With envelope, even 1 cm is safe distance.
    Without envelope, even 10 m is dangerous.

    Are there enough customers to justify opening a non-local club?

Pattaya residents made a grisly find today at the Nongprue Municipality tip this morning. Whilst digging for items they could recycle and sell, they discovered the dead body of a baby. Police are now launching an investigation for the individual responsible. Nongprue Police were notified of the discovery of the corpse of the newborn baby at the garbage dump at the Nongprue Municipality tip this morning.

Emergency responders arrived at the municipal garbage dump to find the body of the baby inside a black plastic bag amongst all the other garbage. 38 year old Sirithon Tapjeen, who made the horrifying discovery, told The Pattaya News that she and some associates were searching for plastic bottles to sell for recycling.

She says she “smelled something rotten before realising that it was a dead newborn baby”.

Police are now trying to find the infant’s mother and anyone associated with the dumping of the body at the site.

32 year old recovers in hospital after tiger attack in Pattaya

32 year old recovers in hospital after tiger attack in Pattaya | The Thaiger

A 32 year old man is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a tiger yesterday whilst feeding it at the Elephant Kingdom park in Pattaya. Only quick action from park staff prevented the man from being mauled and killed by the animal. Emergency responders were called to the scene at around 3.30pm at the Elephant Kingdom in Huay Yai, Banglamung.

The injured man, named as Thitiphong Makkarom, suffered injuries to his legs, arms side of his face. He was rushed to hospital. Friends and fellow workers say that Thitiphong was feeding 3 tigers inside a cage as normal. The park has been closed due to the lack of tourists. They told reporters that Thitiphong had never had problems with these tigers before.

But one of the tigers “jumped” at the worker and started attacking him, apparently unprovoked. Nearby staff saw what was happening and rushed to help pull him away from the attacking tiger. Their quick action probably saved him from being killed.

The Elephant Kingdom Park has been closed since the start of the outbreak of the coronavirus in Thailand back in March. But staff have remained employed to continue feeding and taking care of the animals. The incident is now being investigated and police say they will interview Thitiphong when he is able to speak to them.
