National – Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O’Cha urges the public not to panic over Covid-19 Omicron’s BA.4/BA.5 strain, insisting that the Ministry of Public Health has been monitoring the spreading situation closely.

 

Government spokesperson Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana spoke yesterday, June 26th, that the Prime Minister asked people not to panic about the new mutation as the Public Health Department has closely followed the spread of BA.4/BA.5.

 

Although the World Health Organization has classified it as a strain of concern and must be monitored (VOC lineages under monitoring: VOC-LUM) because of its ability to transmit infection.

I do not think anyone is panicking over this, just the Government who is trying to stay relevant.  If they were really concerned about Life, Health, and Safety then maybe they could ensure the relevant authorities enforce the laws instead of accepting graft to let people do what they want.

The problem is that it is the government who instigate fear & panic as a tool to get the Thai people to conform with their requirements...............

If there's no need to panic why the continued need for the emergency decree...

just asking 😉
