Digital Economy and Society (DES) Minister Chaiwut Thanakamanusorn revealed today (Monday) that he is infected with COVID-19 and is now in hospital for treatment, but his condition is not serious.

 

He said that he might have contracted the disease while visiting the northern province of Chiang Mai last Thursday, adding that he now has a fever and mild headache, but his lungs are normal.

 

The DES minister also said, however, that he will attend a special cabinet meeting today via video conference.

I thought it was only the really sick that were being hospitalised now ...??

Dream on, if you've got so much as a runny nose then you're off to the camp.

I wonder if he is also facing a 2 week detainment in an expensive locked dirty hospital room for 2 weeks, no internet, cold food, and no visitors at his expense, pleading with the staff to do a PCR test in hopes of eventually seeing the outside world again, never to return.

Excellent, so since the minister has some time on hand, may I suggest he to kick all those "developers" and get the "Moh Prom" to work as it remains a "hit and miss" application to absolutely no use to some (like me). The provincial office of public health blames the hospital for the (apparently wrong) data entry while the hospital blames the ministry of health and latter again blames the provincial office of public health. 

A merry-go-round with the usual ridiculous "everybody else's but my fault"!

Maybe he wasn't welcome at home isolation?

Same with me.  I have been to 2 vaccination sites, a hospital and the local MoPH office.  No one has been able to get the app working for me.  Always says (in Thai and you can't copy and paste the message into Google translate) that I am entering the wrong phone number when I try and register.

I've a fever and a headache every morning.   No need to go to a concentration camp. I know what medicine I need... 😁
