Chiang Rai man contracts Covid-19
Health authorities confirmed yesterday that the Covid-19 situation -- in relation to the 10 Thai returnees from Myanmar's border town of Tachilek -- was under control. The confirmation was made despite the fact a man in Chiang Rai was later found to have contracted the virus from the returnees.

Dr Kiatiphum Wongrajit, permanent secretary for health, said at the Public Health Ministry office in Nonthaburi province that health officials tracked the 10 women who returned from Myanmar and found 699 people who had been in contact with them. They have been placed in secure locations, he said. "A spread of the disease should be out of the question now," he said, adding the 10 patients are now in hospitals and have mild symptoms of Covid-19.

One hundred seventy-five people considered at high risk of contracting the disease had tested negative and are currently undergoing 14 days of quarantine. The remaining 524 are considered at low-risk and were also isolated. The negative test results of the people considered to be at high risk brought relief, Dr Kiatiphum said, adding if they remain free of Covid-19 by the end of their quarantine period, health officials can conclude there was no spread of the disease.

Dr Kiatiphum made the remarks before the Chiang Rai man was discovered. Dr Thotsathep Bunthong, chief health officer in Chiang Rai, confirmed around 4.30pm yesterday that the man, 28, had contracted the virus from three of the women, after spending time together from Nov 28 to Dec 1. The man was tested on Dec 2 after learning that his travel mates were infected with the disease, the doctor said, adding the patient was being treated in hospital. He was a close friend of one of the 10 infected women, Dr Thotsathep said.

Three other Thai nationals who returned to Chiang Rai legally were confirmed to be infected by Covid-19 and are now under quarantine, he said. Meanwhile, Dr Opas Karnkawinpong, acting director-general of the Department of Disease Control, said that 150 Thais in Tachilek has asked for permission to legally return to Thailand.

Another local case linked to Thai-Myanmar border sneak

The Department of Disease Control has confirmed another Covid-19 case in Singburi, which can be linked to a Thai woman who sneaked across the border from Tachilek in Myanmar.

Dr Sophon Iamsirithaworn, director of the general communicable diseases department, said on Friday that the new patient, a 51-year-old Thai woman, had taken the same Nok Air DD8717 flight to Don Mueang as the 25-year-old woman, who had secretly crossed over. The 25-year-old then took another flight to Phichit.

The movements of both women are being tracked, Dr Sophon added.

Meanwhile, the two Thai nationals who have taken the legal route back home from Tachilek in Myanmar will join the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration daily press conference on Saturday to dismiss rumours that they had sneaked in.

Rangsit Uni staff, students in lockdown after Covid scare

Rangsit University students and staff have been ordered to self-isolate after one of its students was found to have travelled in the same public van as a returnee from Myanmar who later tested positive for Covid-19.

The university, located in Phatum Thani just north of Bangkok, revealed the timeline of the student:

1. On November 29, the student spent two hours (1pm-3pm) in the same van as the Covid-19 case while returning to his/her hometown in Ratchaburi.

2. On December 2, the student attended class at the university from midday to 5pm. He/she visited the second storey of Building 12/1 and the Student Affairs Office on the second storey of Building 14.

The university said the student is currently self-isolating at his/her residence to monitor symptoms.

"The university has urged all students and staff who came into contact with this student to self-isolate at their residence, said Rangsit University authorities. "Meanwhile all areas that the student visited have been disinfected."

1G1-7 Hotel: the Covid hotspot
The 1G1-7 Hotel has suddenly become a familiar name after a cluster of more than 10 Thai female workers and tourists tested positive for Covid-19 upon returning home from the luxury hotel-cum-entertainment complex in Myanmar's Tachileik.

Situated only 1.5 kilometres from a permanent immigration checkpoint on the Thai-Myanmar border in Mae Sai district of Chiang Rai, the hotel is now recognised as one of the biggest entertainment complexes in Tachileik after four to five years in business, a local source said.

The 1G1-7 Hotel targets high-end guests who seek ultimate entertainment in all forms.

Thai ladies among the hotel staff are said to be highly popular with the hotel guests and clientele.

The four-storey hotel has 100 rooms, with prices ranging from 1,200 baht to 10,000 baht per day.

Right on the ground floor are a pub, bar and discotheque with a combined capacity of receiving, at most, a thousand guests, the source said.

The second floor of the hotel has more than 20 VIP karaoke rooms, with rates ranging from 500 baht to 2,000 baht per hour, he said.

After an outbreak of Covid-19 in Tachileik made headlines, many of the hotel's Thai workers decided to try and sneak back into Thailand via natural trails along the porous border in order to bypass the official Covid-19 screening process because they were afraid they would end up being put into quarantine for 14 days.

After the first Covid-19 case, a woman returning to Chiang Mai through a Chiang Rai border crossing, was found on Nov 28, the number of new infections linked to the 1G1-7 Hotel had risen to 17 as of Friday.

Although not really known to many people in Thailand before it was linked to these new Covid-19 infections, the 1G1-7 Hotel has long been known among nightlife enthusiasts.

It is said to be a business in what is called a grey zone, a joint investment involving business people from Thailand, Myanmar and China.

A Chinese investor is said to hold the largest stake in the business.

CCSA mulls tighter curbs
New cases stem from Thai border hoppers

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) will consider renewing some disease-control measures to curb the spread of Covid-19, including reducing the number of concertgoers and public transport passengers in the wake of at least one new case of local transmission.

A source said Gen Nattaphon Narkphanit, secretary-general of the National Security Council and head of the CCSA's panel on the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, will call a meeting to discuss strict containment measures.

Renewal of disease-control measures that have already been relaxed will be considered carefully, the source said, noting they include reducing the number of people at concerts and in public transport vehicles.

Five new confirmed Covid-19 cases linked to Myanmar were reported on Friday -- two Thai women and a Thai man infected in Myanmar who sneaked back across the border; a businesswoman who travelled onboard an aeroplane with two previously confirmed patients; and a person in Chiang Rai.

The 51-year-old businesswoman was from Sing Buri, Dr Sophon Iamsirithaworn, director of the general communicable disease division under the Disease Control Department, said.

She flew from the northernmost province of Chiang Rai to Bangkok on the same flight as two confirmed cases who had returned from working in Tachileik, a border town in Myanmar, without passing through immigration or quarantine.

He said health officials were questioning the woman to identify where she most likely contracted the virus.

The woman told officials she had not visited Myanmar. If that was verified, she would be considered as another case of local infection, Dr Sophon said.

According to media reports, the Sing Buri woman visited Chiang Rai from Nov 25 to 28 on business.

On Nov 28, she took Nok Air flight DD8717 from Chiang Rai airport to Bangkok's Don Mueang. Two women who have since been confirmed as cases coming from Tachilek were on the same flight. One of them lives in Bangkok and the other in Phichit province.

From Bangkok, the Sing Buri woman returned to her factory in Ang Thong province and later went to her home in adjacent Sing Buri province.

The three other new cases were two Thai women and a Thai man who sneaked back across the border from Tachileik. The 32-year-old man worked as a DJ at a hotel there. He was receiving treatment at Nakornping Hospital in Chiang Mai. The two women also worked at the same hotel.

They were receiving treatment at a hospital in Chiang Rai.

Officials were contacting people who had been in close contact with them.

According to the CCSA, a local infection case in Chiang Rai was a 28-year-old Thai man working at an entertainment venue. He was receiving treatment at a hospital in Chiang Rai. The man came into close contact with an infected woman from Phayao who returned from Tachileik.

In Yala's Betong district, a Thai woman who returned from Malaysia on Nov 25 was confirmed on Friday to be infected with Covid-19 while in a local quarantine facility.

The Public Health Ministry has also asked visitors to Farm Festival at Singha Park in Chiang Rai on the night of Nov 29 to self-quarantine for 14 days after an infected woman visited there.

The CCSA on Friday morning posted a message on Facebook saying: "The Chiang Rai provincial public health office has sought a list of Thai nationals working at a service venue in [Tachileik], which is the origin of the spread of Covid-19, as well as those working at other businesses and entertainment venues.

"Those who enter the country at the Thai-Myanmar Friendship checkpoint and other natural passages must be checked to stop the disease spreading."

In Kanchanaburi, security has again been ordered tightened along the border with Myanmar to stop illegal border-crossers who may bring in Covid-19 in the lead up to the New Year.

Kanchanaburi governor Jirakiart Phumsawat said on Friday the CCSA recently met to discuss the illegal entry by 10 infected Thai workers returning from nearby Tachileik.

While peoples lives are at stake - These 10 people are friends and they told one another to provide the same information to the authorities, so the investigation is difficult. All 10 of them allegedly provided only semi-accurate information.

MOPH - Information on new COVID-19 case in Singburi remains unclear
(NNT) - The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) said it is necessary to wait for the results of the investigation into the new COVID-19 case in Singburi, because the current information is not clear.

Dr. Sophon Iamsirithaworn, Director of the Communicable Diseases Division, said the new COVID-19 case, which is a 51-year-old Singburi woman, has not been reported to the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) as it is still under investigation. If the information provided is accurate, this will be considered a case of local infection. However, it is necessary to wait for the clear results of the investigation, because the current information is not clear and there is some confusion. What is known is that she visited Singha Park, but could remember the date, and she was on the same flight as the women who have since been confirmed as infected. One of them lives in Bangkok and the other in Phichit province. They wore a face mask on the flight, in accordance with the regulations.

He admitted that the investigation of the 10 cases of women, who illegally entered Thailand via the natural border in Chiang Rai, is difficult because not everyone provided accurate information, for fear of legal action. These 10 people are friends and they told one another to provide the same information to the authorities, so the investigation is difficult. The information provided has to be verified with the use of technology, by comparing it with the information from SIM cards. Providing accurate information will make it easier for the authorities to conduct the investigation. All 10 of them allegedly provided only semi-accurate information.

I wonder just what the outcome will be puting the whole countrys lives at risk with charges ranging from violation of the Emergency Decree, violation of the Disease Control Act, and violation of the Immigration Act, through to concealment of information.

Police order tighter border controls; set to prosecute illegal returnees
(NNT) - A deputy national police chief has ordered related police units to impose more stringent border control measures to prevent illegal entry during the holidays, while urging officers to prosecute persons who have illegally returned from Myanmar, and brought the coronavirus with them.

A Royal Thai Police Deputy Commissioner General, Pol Gen Damrongsak Kittiprapas has signed a directive to the Immigration Police Bureau and the Border Patrol Police to enhance their regulations against illegal entry into the country across national borders.

The directive calls for more personnel to be mobilized at checkpoints, with more attention given to natural border crossings, especially in areas of concern in the northern and southern regions.

The deputy police chief has ordered officers to be on high alert during the New Year holidays, where the volume of people traveling may help facilitate illegal entry.

He has instructed police officers to prosecute persons with COVID-19 who have illegally returned to the country via natural borders, with charges ranging from violation of the Emergency Decree, violation of the Disease Control Act, and violation of the Immigration Act, through to concealment of information.

Provincial Police Region 5 will be pursuing cases against Thai women who illegally crossed the Thailand-Myanmar border to work despite the border closure, once they are fully recovered from the virus or have completed their quarantine with negative tests.

Police officers will be informing these women of the charges of illegal entry into the kingdom, and failure to comply with disease control protocols from the provincial communicable diseases committee.

Among the women, three of them have been admitted for treatment at Nakornping Hospital in Chiang Mai, with others in hospitals in Chiang Rai and Phayao.

2 local transmissions among 14 Covid cases Sunday
Thailand recorded 14 new cases of the novel coronavirus on Sunday, including two local transmissions in Bangkok, for a total of 4,086. No new deaths were reported.

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) said one of the two local transmissions is a 26-year-old woman who went to Tachileik on Nov 6.

The CCSA did not say why the woman was regarded as a local transmission case despite having returned from Tachileik. However, CCSA records show that she sneaked back across the border on Nov 27 with a male friend. The two stayed together at a hotel in Mae Sai district of Chiang Rai, opposite the Myanmar town. They also visited several places in Mae Sai together.

The woman flew from Chiang Rai to Bangkok on Nov 29 on THAI Smile flight WE137, and stayed at a hotel in the capital until Thursday.

The man left Chiang Rai for Bangkok a day later, on Nov 30.

On Friday, the two went to the Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Bangkok, where the man tested positive for Covid-19. The woman reportedly felt ill that day, with a runny nose, and returned to the hospital on Saturday -- when she also tested positive for Covid-19.

Sophon Iamsirithaworn, director of the general communicable disease division, said five people – mostly in Chiang Rai -- were at high risk of contracting the disease due to close contact with her. One of them was tested in Chiang Rai and the result was negative, he added.

The second case of local transmission was a female health worker at an alternative state quarantine facility at a private hospital. She had a fever on Thursday and a test on the same day was positive.

In addition to the two local cases, the centre recorded another 12 imported cases on Sunday -- two of them Thais who illegally crossed the border back from Myanmar. Another eight cases were foreigners who flew in from abroad.

The CCSA said one of the two Thai patients was a 70-year-old man who travelled to Tachileik and then illegally entered the country in Mae Sot district of Tak on Nov 29. His test at Mae Sot Hospital on Friday was positive.

Another case was a woman 26, who crossed from Myanmar to Mae Sot on Nov 27. She worked at an entertainment venue in Tachileik, the centre said, without elaborating.

The CCSA did not explain why two Thais working in Tachileik illegally returned to the country by crossing the border between Myawaddy and Mae Sot.

Myawaddy is located about 600 kilometres southwest of Tachileik.

Authorities have tightened security along the Thai-Myanmar border in Mae Sai since a Thai woman tested positive in Chiang Mai after sneaking back across the border on Nov 24. She had been working at 1G1 Hotel, a suspected Covid hotspot in the Myanmar town.

Since the first case was reported on Nov 24, Thailand has now found 23 patients who were infected with the coronavirus in Tachileik or caught it from people who returned from there.

CCSA spokesman Dr Taweesilp Visanuyothin urged all Thais illegally returning from Myanmar to report to health officials for testing to prevent the virus from spreading.

"We do not know how many more cases will be found. Please report to us and we will take care of you," he added.

The latest cases brought the accumulated tally in Thailand since the start of the outbreakto 4,086.

Emergency health centres to open nationwide ahead of possible COVID-19 spread
Thailand's Public Health Ministry has instructed all provincial administrations to open emergency health centres, as a precautionary measure in case COVID-19 begins to spread, following the outbreak in Chiang Rai after infected Thais returned illegally from Myanmar.

Public Health Permanent Secretary Dr. Kiatipoom Wongrachit said that the pandemic is still spreading in Myanmar and several Thai people who worked there, and have returned to Thailand, have been found to be infected.

Under the precautionary measures, all provincial hospitals must put medical personnel, medical supplies and labs on standby, to cope with any emergency.

Call centres are to be opened in every province to allow people at risk to call for advice.

Meanwhile, four pub-restaurants in the northern province of Chiang Rai have been ordered to close for 1-2 weeks for disinfection and cleanup, by the provincial administration, after they were visited by COVID-infected returnees from Myanmar's Thachilek township.

The closure of Tawandang Saadsaengduen Chiang Rai, Unseen Chiang Rai, 8080 and the Library Chiang Rai is an effort to convince customers that they will be safe when they reopen for business.

In Chiang Mai province, the Provincial Communicable Diseases Committee reported this evening that a 26-year old Thai woman, who worked at the 1G1 Hotel in Thachilek, snuck back to Thailand and arrived in Chiang Mai on November 30th, thenentering local quarantine.

On December 3rd, she had a fever and cough and tested positive for the virus.

Nine more COVID-19 cases recorded in Chiang Rai today all from Thachilek
The Chiang Rai Provincial Communicable Disease Control Committee reported nine more COVID-19 cases, all returnees from Myanmar's Thachilek township and in local state quarantine, increasing infections in this northern border province to 20.

Governor Prachon Pratsakul, who chaired the committee, said that 19 of the infections are Thais who used to work at Thachilek's 1G1 Hotel. The other is a local resident, who contracted the disease from one of the early returnees who had snuck across the border.

He also said that the provincial administration would be able to contain the spread of the disease if the remaining Thais in Thachilek return to Thailand through the formal immigration checkpoint and enter local state quarantine.

According to the committee, there are 139 in local state quarantine, 30 high-risk and 109 low-risk contacts.

Health officials in the province have conducted tests on 2,575 people since December 2nd, 1,521 of whom have been cleared, with results still pending for the remaining 1,054.

To prevent border crossings, by both Thais working in Myanmar and Myanmar people, troops have been on 24-hour patrol of the road accesses to Mae Sai and Chiang Saen districts, while more razor wire has been installed at the natural border crossings frequently used by illegal Thai returnees and Myanmar people.

Meanwhile, the CCSA today reported 14 new COVID-19 cases, including two locally-transmitted cases in Bangkok and two returnees from Myanmar. The remaining ten infections are arrivals from Saudi Arabia, Belgium, Ukraine, the US, Qatar, Sweden, Japan, Myanmar and the UK.

CCSA spokesman Dr. Taweesin Wissanuyothin said that cumulative infections, to 11am today, are 4,086, with 3,853 recoveries. 173 others are still being treated in hospitals.

He said that the infection rate in Thailand is 6.15 per 100,000 people.  He also said that the 14 new cases today is still low, compared to the infection rate in March when the state of emergency was announced to contain the pandemic.
One of the two locally-transmitted cases in Bangkok is a 27-year old woman, who returned from Thachilek, and the other is a medic in hotel based quarantine, who contracted the virus while at work.

Dr. Sophon Karnkawinpong, acting director-general of the Disease Control Department, said that health investigators in Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phichit, Phitsanuloke, Ratchaburi, Sing Buri and Bangkok have been coordinating with the Disease Control Department to trace those in close contact with the infected people.

So far, there are 23 infections linked to Thachilek.

27 placed on high risk watch after COVID-infected man lies about his movements
Thailand's western border province of Tak, exposing 27 people to the risk of infection.

After having verified that the statement given by the Myanmar untrue, Dr. Natthakarn Chuenchom of Mae Sot Hospital said that the district's health officials have decided to declare areas actually visited by the infected man to be high risk zones, as a precautionary measure.

She said that the businessman, who engages in the export of used Japanese cars to Myanmar and has a visa for Thailand,claimed that he went to a 7-Eleven convenience store near the Friendship 1 Bridge several times while in Mae Sot district, but a check of the CCTV system at the store could not confirm his story, prompting officials to declare the store safe.

According to the timeline of the man's movements, from November 26th to December 3rd, as detailed by Mae Sot Hospital, the whereabouts of the infected man, from November 16th to 29th, could not be ascertained.

On November 20th, however, he went to a cargo terminal in the district at about 5.30pm, and on December 1st, a neighbor reported that he went to a clinic to see doctor.  On December 2nd,he drove his car to pick up a friend and they travelled together to a private company to arrange for a passport. He then went out for dinner in the evening.

On December 3rd, he went to a condominium to collect a parcel,then to a cargo delivery service to ship the package and then to the district airport. At about 5pm, he visited Mae Sot district for health screening, ahead of a flight to Singapore, and then returned to the delivery company at 6pm.  The test result the next day showed he was infected. According to Mae Sot district, 13 people who were in contact with the businessman were classified as being at high-risk and 14 others as at low-risk.

Meanwhile, the hospital issued a statement, denying a report on the social media that an 80-year old, under treatment at the hospital since December 4th, had died, adding that he is still in intensive care.

Authorities have also intercepted a boat trying to cross the Moei River into Mae Slot district. The boatman, believed to be a member of a human smuggling gang, escaped but the two Myanmar passengers, aged 15 and 12, were apprehended.

Four Thais, who illegally crossed from Myanmar to escape mandatory quarantine, were also arrested after their car was stopped at a checkpoint.  All were sent to the district hospital for health screening.

Interior Permanent Secretary Chatchai Promplert on Sunday instructed all governors of provinces bordering Myanmar to step up efforts to prevent illegal entry by both Myanmar and Thai people. Local officials and volunteers were also told to look out for strangers in their communities.

121 Thais to cross border and return home from Myanmar this week
More than 100 Thais in Myanmar's Tachileik town have contacted officials to return to their country, while some young women are still trying to sneak in through natural channels, an official said.

After the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus in Tachileik, which borders Mae Sai district in Tak province, many Thai people who had been working in entertainment venues in the Myanmar town have been wanting to return home.

Recently, 84 Thai people returned to Thailand through the permanent border checkpoint at the 2nd Thai-Myanmar Friendship Bridge.

In addition, there are also those who coordinate through The Border Consortium of Thai-Myanmar (TBC) to return across the border.

TBC said 121 people will return to Thailand by crossing the border on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

It is estimated that hundreds of Thais are still staying back in Tachileik. Thai security officials are trying to find those crossing over illegally across the border to bring them into the normal system quickly to prevent further risk of the pandemic spreading.

TBC of Thailand and Myanmar are working together to bring the stranded Thais back more conveniently, an official said. All Thais will be brought into the quarantine system through quarantine accommodation or state local quarantine at Mae Sai district.

However, there are still a number of young Thai women who are unable to return with normal coordination or do not have access to information, but they are attempting to return to Thailand through natural channels. As the entertainment venue in Tachileik has been shut down due to the outbreak, living there has become difficult. The number of Covid-19 cases in Chiang Rai as of December 6 has increased to 20.

Dr Sophon Iamsirithaworn, general communicable diseases director at the Department of Disease Control, told the press that there are so many cases from Tachilek because though the 1G1 hotel, where many of them work, was closed on November 24 due to the outbreak, infections spread because people lived in airconditioned surroundings without wearing a mask. So far, at least 36 patients have been linked to this location.

Everyone in Chiang Rai to wear face masks as six new COVID-19 cases are reported
A province-wide campaign will be launched in Thailand's northern border province of Chiang Rai to encourage everyone there to wear a face mask while they are outdoors, after six more COVID-19 cases were recorded today among Thai returnees, from Myanmar's Thachilek township, and are in local quarantine.

A big cleanup of the entire province is also scheduled for December 10th, starting at 10am, according to Governor Prachon Pratsakul who maintained, however, that there is no lockdown yet in the province, in the wake of an increasing number of infections brought in by Thais working in the entertainment industry in Thachilek.

The six new cases are all Thai women, two of whom, aged 25 and 24, worked at a nightclub and karaoke bar in Thachilek and four others, aged 25 to 31 who worked at the iG1 Hotel, also in Thachilek.

Governor Prachon said that the COVID-infected illegal returnees will be dealt with in accordance with the law, once they have completed treatment, adding that, by keeping all returnees from Myanmar in local quarantine, the disease will be contained.

Regarding health screening for those in contact with the infected people, health officials have conducted tests on 4,224 cases, between December 2nd and 6th. 3,113 have tested negative and results of the rest are expected this evening.

Director of Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital said that they can accommodate up to 60 patients, while the medical centre at Mae Fah Luang has more than 300 beds available receive patients.

Ban Pa Daeng School has been ordered closed for a week from today, after some staff were found to be infected.

"I think they are selfish. They should be punished, according to laws," said Wirun.

We must develop a conscience to prevent a second wave of COVID-19
Thailand has been praised on the international stage for the way it is dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. But the recent cases, discovered in several provinces, resulting from a group of people who snuck across the border in Chiang Rai province illegally and failed to self-isolate, have unsettled many.

Head of Song Khwae Village in Nan province, Wirun Pukkham, said he is not angry. But he thinks the returnees must realize the important of travelling through legal channels, not sneaking in, and failing to quarantine themselves. These actions get other people, the whole country in trouble.

Nan is the only one province in Thailand to report zero COVID_19 cases. Part of its success are tough preventive measures with cooperation from every part of society. There was a time when they didn't allow any non-Nan residents to enter the province then, anyone going in had to be isolated for 14 days.

Wirun is not the only one feeling uneasy about the whole situation. The District Chief of Song Khwae, in the same province, Somkeat Artsung, said it is a matter of having a conscience. "If everyone has common sense and has a conscience and you came from a high-risk country, you have to go through a screening process. If you have symptoms, you can receive treatment, instead of infecting others."

The deputy director of Nan hospital, Dr. Pongthep Wongwatcharapaiboon, admitted that, out of hundreds of ways returnees could sneak in, there is some leakage. What Thailand has to do is to instill a conscience in people. He said Thailand needs strict law enforcement, alongside with a growing conscience. "We have to make everyone realize it is necessary to cooperate. I even think having a conscience is more important, because we won't be able to keep our eyes on every detail all the time. Everyone has to cooperate seriously."

Although, most of the people at risk tested negative on the first swab, the incident put the whole country on alert. Health experts say that, if Thailand sticks to strict hygiene measures, like wearing a mask, washing hands, and keeping a distance, the chance of the virus spreading as fast as it did when it first entered Thailand would be very low.

Dr. Pongthep said it is like everyone is a soldier. They have got their weapons but, when there is no war, they put the weapons away. When the adversary returns, everyone takes out their mask. He now expects everyone to wear a mask, 100 percent.

Sing Buri woman probably infected at Chiang Rai airport
A woman from Sing Buri had probaby caught novel coronavirus disease from two Thai women returning from Tachilek township while they were waiting for a flight at Chiang Rai airport, a senior public health official said on Monday.

Sophon Iamsirithaworn, director of the Communicable Diseases Division, said the 51-year-old woman from Sing Buri was probably infected with Covid-19 by the returnees at Mae Fah Luang airport, not while on the plane.

The three flew from Chiang Rai to Don Mueang airport on Nok Air flight DD8717 on Nov 28.  Dr Sophon rejected a theory that the virus was spread in the aircraft. All passengers wore face masks and the woman from Sing Buri sat eight rows behind the two returnees, he said.

She was probably infected in the area where the three women sat before boarding the plane. Security camera recordings showed the three women were not properly wearing their face masks.

"They were wearing their face masks below their nose and mouth," he said. The airport had since sprayed disinfectant throughout the areas where infected travellers waited, he said

The cases involving the three women were reported by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration on Friday.

The Public Health Ministry has not yet concluded if the Sing Buri woman's case was a local transmission or not, but the latest evidence could point to that direction.

Chiang Rai is plagued by virus cases from Tachilek. The country has 38 cases linked to the  spread of the virus by workers returning from the Myanmar border town, 26 of them in Chiang Rai.

Dr Sophon renewed calls for passengers on the same flights as infected women to immediately go to a hospital if they develop symptoms such as a fever, cough, runny nose, or impaired sense of smell and taste.

Flights from Chiang Rai on the list are: Nok Air flight DD8817 on Nov 28, Thai Lion Air flight SL533 on Nov 29, WE137 of THAI Smile on Nov 29, and Thai Lion Air flight SL545 on Nov 30.

All four flights carried passengers whose tests were later positive for the virus.

38 infections linked to Thachilek cluster recorded so far
A total of 38 COVID-19 infections, linked to Thai returnees from Myanmar's Thachilek township, have been reported so far in seven provinces, with Chiang Rai having the most at 26.

Meanwhile, the army plans to use drones, equipped with live CCTV, to patrol the Thai-Myanmar border in some of the northern provinces, to help officials prevent illegal border crossings.

Maj-Gen Chakrapong Chanpengpen, of the Security Emergency Situation Operations Centre, said that drones will be deployed in border areas, which are inaccessible to ground forces, adding that more road checkpoints, manned by troops, police and defence volunteers, are to be set up deeper inland, to conduct random checks.

According to the Disease Control Department, of the 38 cluster infections reported between November 28th and December 7th, 26 are in Chiang Rai, five in Chiang Mai, three in Bangkok and one each in Phayao, Phichit, Ratchaburi and Sing Buri provinces.

36 of the 38 cases are linked to the 1G1 Hotel complex in Thachilek, including 20 cases in local quarantine after their return from Myanmar and two locally transmitted cases.

The 1G1 Hotel was closed on November 24th, forcing many Thais working there to return to Thailand. Some did not show any symptoms upon their return, but they were subject to local quarantine for 14 days in Chiang Rai, during which they are to be tested twice.

Regarding the case of a 51-year old Thai woman from Sing Buri province, who took flight DDB717 from Mae Fah Luang airport in Chiang Rai to Don Mueang airport on November 28th, the Disease Control Department said that 55 contacts have been traced, including 37 classified as high risk, and 32 have been cleared, with the results of the remaining five still pending.

Those who sneak back will face legal punishment because they are irresponsible towards others and society as a whole

PM allays 2nd wave concerns
Quarantine dodgers to face legal action
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha tried to allay fears of a second wave of coronavirus infections, saying the Thais who sneaked back across the border from Myanmar's Tachileik town were not super-spreaders.

The prime minister also warned that those who entered the country illegally via natural passages to avoid mandatory quarantine will face legal action.

Speaking via the government's Thai Khu Fah podcast broadcast on Monday, Gen Prayut gave assurances that the Covid-19 situation in Thailand remained under control despite some infected Thais sneaking back across the border from Myanmar.

"It is not a second wave of infections or super-spreaders. It is individual infections. We have asked the neighbouring country to screen and prevent them from entering via natural passages along the border," the prime minister said.

He said he instructed authorities to build barricades along the border and step up border patrols around the clock to stop illegal crossings by people who may bring the disease with them.

The Interior Ministry has also been told to set up additional checkpoints to watch for those who might manage to sneak back, while local residents have also been urged to keep an eye out for strangers or outsiders who enter their villages and alert authorities, the prime minister said.

"Those who sneak back will face legal punishment because they are irresponsible towards others and society as a whole," Gen Prayut said.

"I told security agencies to use aerial photography or drones to survey any new natural crossings that might be used by illegal border crossers so additional barricades and patrols can be deployed there," Gen Prayut said.

He also warned that human smuggling gangs that helped people enter the country illegally via natural passages will be dealt with severely and any officials who were involved will also be punished.

The prime minister also called for public calm, saying the government is finding ways to solve the Covid-19 problem. He added that the Covid-19 situation is expected to ease next year when vaccines are available.

Gen Nattaphon Narkphanit, head of the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration's (CCSA) panel on the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, chaired a meeting to follow up on cases involving Thais returning from working at the Covid-19 hotspot hotel in Myanmar's Tachileik town.

After the meeting, Dr Opas Karnkawinpong, director-general of the Department of Disease Control, said that there were a total of 32 infected patients who sneaked back from Myanmar, with two local transmission cases who contracted the virus from the returnees from Myanmar.

Dr Opas said that the National Security Council had instructed security agencies to tighten curbs on illegal entry through natural passages. All must go through official checkpoints and undergo mandatory 14-day quarantine, he said.

"The situations in Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai and other provinces where infections were found have been brought under control. So far, no additional cases from Tachileik have been found. Don't worry. Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai are safe for travel," Dr Opas said.

Jaturon Chaiyakham, deputy director-general of the Department of Consular Affairs, said that the prime minister had instructed the Foreign Affairs Ministry to expedite the relaxation of restrictions on foreigners entering Thailand.

In light of this, the ministry will seek cabinet approval for an extension of free visas for foreign tourists from 30 days to 45 to compensate for their 14-day-quarantine period. There are 56 eligible countries for visa exemption. This will also apply to Russia which has a visa-exemption agreement with Thailand, Mr Jaturon said.

With the extension, the number of tourists is expected to increase from 10,000 to 20,000 per month, he said.

The CCSA on Monday recorded 21 new cases of the novel coronavirus, including nine Thais who reentered the country from Myanmar, for an accumulated total of 4,107 since the outbreak began. No new deaths were reported, leaving the toll at 60.

The CCSA said the new cases comprised 15 Thais and six foreigners.

The Thai returnees included nine people who had worked at the coronavirus hotspot 1G1-7 Hotel in Tachileik, Myanmar. Unlike previous returnees, however, they re-entered Mae Sai district of Chiang Rai through the official checkpoint and were tested immediately.

Anutin slams 'selfish, irresponsible' Thais sneaking back across border
Deputy Prime Minister Anutin Charnvirakul has voiced support for business owners planning to sue people infected with Covid-19 who re-entered the country illegally, saying they were "selfish and irresponsible" and needed to be taught a lesson.

Mr Anutin, also public health minister, was responding to a report that businesses in Chiang Rai were planning legal action against people who returned illegally with the virus and caused problems for other people, including damage to their businesses. They  plan to demand 20 million baht in compensation.

"Go ahead. Sue them. They should do that," Mr Anutin said. They had the right to do so.

He said the government would also take legal action against them for breaches of  immigration and disease control laws.

All Thai people were entitled to re-enter the country through legal means, including infected people, he said.

"The problem is some of them slipped into the country illegally, not wanting to be in quarantine for 14 days. This is selfish and irresponsible on their part, and a cause of trouble  for many other people," he said.

The minister said the government knew how many Thais were still stranded in neighbouring countries. They had been told to return through legal channels. In doing so, they would undergo a health screening process.

Those who test negative for Covid-19 would be required to go into quarantine. Those testing positive would be taken to a hospital for treatment.

Disease control officials were ready to receive them at border checkpoints, he said.

Asked about Thais returning from Laos, where there were entertainment complexes similar to those in Tachilek in Myanmar, a Covid-19 hotspot, Mr Anutin said authorities would make  sure they were properly screened.

Asked if provinces with new Covid-19 infections would be locked down, Mr Anutin said that was not yet necessary. Those who returned and were found to be infected had mostly been in close contact with other returnees. They had not spread the virus to an extent beyond control.

Moreover, the returnees with Covid-19 problem came only from Tachilek.

Eight more Covid-19 infections in Chiang Rai
Eight new Covid-19 infections were found in this northern border province on Tuesday, all coming from Myanmar's Tachilek town opposite Mae Sai district, governor Prachon Pratsakul said.

This raised the total number of recent cases to 34.

Of the total, 23 had worked at the 1G1-7Hotel, two at the Hollywood nightclub, one at another hotel, and seven from another entertainment spot in Tachilek. Another case also was from Tachilek, and had previously been thought to be a local infection, the governor said.

Dr Tossapol Boonthong, chief of the Chiang Rai public health office, said the 27th case was a 22-year-old woman who illegally crossed back from Tachilek to Chiang Rai on Nov 29 and went to the Farm Festival that same day.

From Nov 30, she stayed with a boyfriend in Chiang Rai. On Nov 5, she went to a private hospital where she tested positive for Covid-19.

She was initially thought to have been infected in Chiang Rai, because she did not tell health officials she had been in Myanmar.

It was a relief to learn she caught the virus in Tachilek and was not locally infected, Dr Tossapol said.

He said the 28th-34th cases had all worked at an entertainment complex in Tachilek and had returned legally via a border checkpoint.

Dr Tossathep saidone of the infected women had already recovered and would be discharged from hospital on Wednesday. She would still have to spend 14 days in quarantine before being released.

Cabinet approves long-stay visas for all
The cabinet on Tuesday resolved to offer long-stay special tourist visas (STV) to visitors from every country instead of only those with low risks of the novel coronavirus.

Deputy government spokesperson Ratchada Dhnadirek said the cabinet made the decision after the earlier limitation of the STV measure had brought fewer visitors than expected.

STV has attracted only 825 visitors of 29 nationalities and brought in only six yachts since the measure took effect in late October, she said.

The cabinet also approved a 30-day period for visitors on yachts to seek visas after the new STV measure takes effect.

Despite the access relaxation, long-stay visitors would still have to give clear information on their planned accommodations in Thailand and be quarantined for 14 days, Miss Ratchada said.

STV is initially valid for 90 days and is renewable twice.

Covid-19 strain in Myanmar spreads 20% faster, says Mahidol University dean
Prof Dr Prasit Watanapa, dean of Mahidol University's Faculty of Medicine, said on Tuesday that Covid-19 has spread a lot faster in Myanmar because there are no effective measures in place to track people and the virus strain is different.

He said the virus has spread 200-times faster across the country because the movement of less than 50 per cent of people travelling from affected areas has been tracked.

He also said the strain of the virus present in Myanmar is very different from the D614 strain from Wuhan, the Chinese city where the virus was first detected. The G614 strain, which is infecting people in the West, has also been spreading in Myanmar since the first case was detected in the country on March 23. This strain can multiply 20 per cent faster than the original one.

"Thais returning from Myanmar and refusing to enter mandatory controls or concealing their information is dangerous not just to themselves, but also their families, society and medical personnel. This shows that one weak point can have a huge impact on the country and a negative effect on society. Hence, I'm calling for people to cooperate and be on guard. We can boost our immunity against the virus by wearing a mask, keeping our hands clean and maintaining distance," he said.

Prasit said cooler weather, a rise in the number of infections in neighbouring countries like Myanmar and Malaysia as well as public gatherings are causes of concern and hospitals should prepare for an increase in infections.

Thailand has signed an agreement with AstraZeneca for the purchase of 26 million doses as well as support for local production. The AstraZeneca vaccine, which has so far proved to be 90 per cent effective, needs to be tested three times by the Thai Food and Drug Administration which will take about one month. Then it will take another four months to produce the vaccines, which means the first vaccination can be expected after May next year.

Covid-19 from Tachilek 'under control'
The spread of Covid-19 by women returning from Tachilek in Myanmar is well under control, with more than 6,500 at-risk people tested and only two local infections detected, senior health officials said on Wednesday.

There were now 46 confirmed Tachilek-related cases, including two locally infected and 27 detected during quarantine, Dr Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesman for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said.

There were 34 in Chiang Rai province, five in Chiang Mai, three in Bangkok and one each in Phayao, Phichit, Ratchaburi and Sing Buri.

They were divided into three groups. The first consisted of 17 women who sneaked back through natural border crossings. There were six cases in Chiang Rai, five in Chiang Mai, three in Bangkok and one each in Phayao, Phichit and Ratchaburi.

The second group involved 27 cases, or 14% of  the 196 people who  returne through border crossings and entered local quarantine facilities. They were in Chiang Rai.

Two others contracted the disease locally through close contact with infected people. One of them was in Chiang Rai and the other in Sing Buri.

Dr Taweesin implored other people who had returned illegally from Tachilek to report to health officials for Covid-19 tests, saying 14 days had not passed since the first detected case of Tachilek-related infection on Nov 28.

The incubation period of Covid-19 is accepted as 14 days.

Dr Opas Karnkawinpong, director-general of the Disease Control Department, said that most Tachilek-related cases were in Chiang Rai and the cases over the past three days were in quarantine in Chiang Rai.

"Therefore, the overall situation is under control... There has not been a new case in Chiang Mai since Dec 5 and new cases in Chiang Rai were found with proactive operations bringing returnees from Myanmar to the (disease control) system," he said.

"There has not been a new case in Phayao since Dec 1, in Bangkok since Dec 6, in Phichit since Dec 1, in Ratchaburi since Dec 2 and in Sing Buri since Dec 4. Disease control in these provinces is very strong."

About 5,100 at-risk people were tested in Chiang Rai and only one of them, a friend of a returnee from Tachilek, tested positive, he said.

Officials tested 1,469 people with high risk of infection from Tachilek returnees in other  provinces and only three tested positive thanks to quick detection of infected people, Dr Opas said.

He said that tourists could visit the provinces without any worries, as long as they covered their nose and mouth with face masks, observed social distancing and regularly washed their hands.
