The Phetchabun provincial governor has ordered two villages, next to Thailand’s famous mountain resort of Phu Tub Berk, closed to all outsiders from Monday until end of this month after several villagers were found to be infected with COVID-19.

 

The resort, which is a popular among city dwellers who like to spend their weekends or long holidays there and at nearby Khao Khor during the cold season, remain open to tourists.

 

According to Governor Krit Kongmuang, the infections at villages No 14 and 16 in Ban Phu Tub Berk were traced to an infected 27-year old woman who recently arrived from Bangkok to attend the funeral of a relative, adding that several of those who were in close contact with her contracted the disease and then spread it to the others.

Yet, the local villagers can come and go - whether being suspected of being infected or not? 

Any such lockdown begins from the inside firstly, not the outside.....

Yet the government figures are telling us the infection rate is on the decrease...

How convenient is that with Nov 1st looming.

I can understand the reasoning behind lockdowns and Quarantine but in my eyes waste of time in Thailand. Friends and Families come and go to each others houses, no mask wearing once inside the house
