Thais told: Don't enter illegally after massage girl brings Covid back from Malaysia

Disease control expert Dr Opas Kankawinpong had a message yesterday for his compatriots tempted to circumvent official channels and sneak into the country:

 

Don't!

 

He noted that Thais were still sneaking in after a 31 year old woman from Naratiwas in the far south entered via a natural border from Malaysia.

 

Daily News said she was a massage woman in their headline.

 

In further details at Sunday's briefing Dr Opas said that 21 people were infected by a 19 year old Myanmar woman in Samut Prakan. 

 

Downloading of the Mor Chana tracing app had dropped off, he said, urging people to continue getting the app.

 

The outbreak at Icon Siam was limited to 7 staff and was an internal matter not affecting anyone else. 

 

With today, February 1st, being the day that many restrictions in the country are easing he repeated the oft heard mantra about social distancing, hand washing and mask wearing as well as not traveling to risky areas.

So they never ever contacted anyone else in their daily movements....hmmmm, very suspicious.

Was she Asymptomatic and spread the virus by shedding it, or was she symptomatic.  More details would be nice.

It seems to me he's effectively admitted the army can't protect the country from invaders across a 600km-wide border.

But it can not be Porous.  DPM Prawit has said he will install CCTV cameras everywhere so they can not sneak in.

That's in the daytime when they are monitoring the cameras. At night aren’t they monitoring soap-operas?

now, with martial law in myanmar, there would be many more thai, as well as burmese, including rohinya, escaping the military regime, political repression.

Some would settle down in all border provinces, some would travel all through thailand to cross to malaysia, in search for work (especially rohinya and any other muslims)

It would be fair to assume there will be a number of people from Myanmar fleeing to Thailand to escape persecution under the new Military Regime.

Many will not bother to travel to Malaysia, as there is ample opportunity for them here among the Thai Muslim communities, as well as work Etc.

They appear to have more problems with illegals than the dirty foreigners, will the coup in Myanmar see more flooding across the border ?

We are still waiting to see the findings that have not yet been disclosed by the unelected "PM" into what happened with the Burmese illegals paying their way into Thailand that started off this last round of covid19.

I don't see how we can expect the unelected "PM" to do anything about it this time either. He will need to keep his soldiers handy in case the protesters start again.

What's the betting that the people who transported the last Burmese illegals into Thailand will be filling their pockets again.
