INN reported on the comments of the Thai health minister and DPM Anutin Charnvirakul after a group of parents went to see him to request that schools stop relying on ATK tests and stop insisting that students wear masks. 

 

Anutin deflected the requests saying that ATK testing was a matter for individual schools to protect their communities.

 

It was up to them whether to insist on it or not as schools were essentially large gatherings of people.

 

He used the opportunity to say that vaccine for children would be arriving in Thailand in February and he hoped that parents would allow their children to be vaxxed.

 

ASEAN NOW notes that this appeared to refer to the Pfizer vaccine for 5 to 12 year olds. Older children already had the chance to be vaccinated late last year.

ASEAN NOW could also take note that the confusion of calling "children" young persons of less than 18 years is typical of the Engish language, but not necessarily universal. In my language and others I know, it is not possible to call "child" a 13 years old. Unless you want to risk serious bodily harm from the so-called child.

I call BS for the entire multi biased comment.  I would never let my 13 year old, 5 year old, or 18 year old "child" to do harm or even just hit at me nor any other adult as far as that goes.  You approve of them beating up on your wife or girl friend as well do you?  If you have one, I do pity her surrounded by such violence and dysfunctional family.  My sons are fine young men in their early 40's and would never have thought about doing that at any age.  They knew better than to do so.  Maybe I just am a better parent than you but you can let a 13 year old "child" run all over you if you think that's best for them.  You know nothing of an English speaking country, our language, nor particularly any other society it does seem.  ASEAN NOW did a fine job of referencing the obvious about ages reported by INN.  You don't seem to GET a lot of things.
