More than 1,100 inmates at Krabi provincial prison were transferred to prisons in Phuket, Nakhon Si Thammarat and Songkhla provinces during Friday night, with the remaining 600 to be moved today.


Prison officials said that the transfer of inmates has been proceeding slowly, because each truck can carry only 50 people.


About 300 inmates have tested positive for COVID-19 using antigen test kits, prompting several to demand that the infected be moved out of the prison, which was rejected by the warden. Only the serious cases were sent to the hospital for treatment, while asymptomatic cases were kept in the prison.


During the riot yesterday, some prisoners torched their sleeping quarters.

It's highly possible that sending these prisoners to other areas of Thailand is just going to help the spread of the virus.

Curses! You have detected our cunning plan.....😋
