People who travel or potentially put others at risk after knowingly being infected with COVID-19 face legal action, health officials have warned.

 

The warning comes after a woman in Bangkok took a flight from Don Mueang to Nakhon Sri Thammarat on 11 April, despite knowing she was already infected with the virus.

 

Dr Charaspong Sukree, the head public health official in Nakhon Sri Thammarat, said the relevant agencies are determining where the offence took place in order to begin legal proceedings. 

 

The woman concerned didn’t break the law Nakhon Sri Thammarat as she told health officials  of her infection on arrival.

 

However, she needlessly put other passengers at risk and travelled from Bangkok despite being informed on 10 April she was infected.

 

Dr Charaspong also said the private laboratory that tested the woman faces legal action for failing to notify the Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) of the positive infection so the woman could begin quarantine. 

 

The news comes as legal action has started against the  owner of a pub in Hua Hin which is at the epicenter of infections in the region.

 

Health officials have said that 90 percent of infections in Prachuap Khiri Khan can be linked back to the Maya Pub in Hua Hin.

 

The infections occurred after  the pub  held a pop concert on 31 March.  The concert was attended by a member from the Krystal Club in  Bangkok, which has also been linked to  many cases of the virus in Bangkok. 

 

On Wednesday, a formal complaint was filed at Hua Hin police station against the manager and owner of the Maya Pub for allegedly violating the Emergency Decree, the Communicable Disease Act, the Entertainment Venue Act and the provincial administration’s order.

 

Earlier this week the manager of the Krystal Club was jailed for two months for violating zoning law and the pandemic emergency decree.

 

According to the Communicable Diseases Act BE 2558 (2015), anyone who violates the emergency law for COVID-19 can  face up to 2 years in jail and/or a  minimum fine of 40,000 THB.

 

This includes anyone who conceals their timeline or provides false information to the authorities.

Oh brother, more ways to obtain money from the peasants as it will be guilty until they can be proven innocent and had no knowledge they were infected.  Just because one goes somewhere where people are infected does not mean they themselves had contracted said virus if they were never in close proximity. SO to blame them for spreading the virus while being asymptomatic possible is just nuts.  This punitive feces is just to much.

Now there are n o protests in the street we find something else....the worst persons to blame are the people in  the Government. They are incompetent, selfish, and very stupid in handling this Covid crisis.

But they will be done no harm. Happiness to the people

Government workers won't be isolating, they will be working from home for 14 days in accordance to the PM's wishes.

It will end when enough people are more scared of the anti measures than the virus.

The upshot from this will be a law that allows the authorities to frog march you straight to a field hospital following a positive test..........this is very concerning.........you could argue anyone who tests positive who doesn't then isolate could be charged......not good.

 

I don't see any material difference between catching a flight and going to a shop.

All getting a bit predictable now....... What next, bunkers at every street corner and if anything moves, two in the chest and one in the head ?   

I've been flying quite a lot internationally this year and i can tell you that you can't get onto an aircraft without a test sheet, which makes perfect sense, but of course there'll always be the "What if" brigade that are so scared that they would have every man and his dog cling filmed under his bed for the next ten years, ...... Just in case......... Absolute madness......   If governments don't start getting their act together soon and restoring normality to the people, then the people will start removing governments......   It's all getting a bit us and them at the moment and haul up the ladder Jack......I'm alright.........

One class is forced to isolate under duress, the others are governed by two tiered societal de-facto norms which pretty much allows them to do whatever they want with no consequences. The knee first goes to the necks of the migrants followed by the necks of the commoners.  The upper crust are held to different standards.  It will bite them in the butt eventually.

at the arrival province she didn’t break the law. They are working out what law she broke on departure.
