A Mae Kued Luang rescue staffer complained to Mae Sot General hospital’s Covid-19 outbreak surveillance centre today (March 6) that a woman, 35, who returned from South Korea and was living with her children in Maekasa sub-district was not undergoing a 14-day self-quarantine according to a Public Health ministry order.

Her neighbour was upset and worried after the woman posted photos on her Facebook page of her visiting many places after her return from South Korea. In some pictures, she is even shown in crowded areas. The post suddenly vanished after many people angrily commented about her responsibility to society.

The coordinator of the rescue said the suspect has agreed to take a virus test. A hospital ambulance was sent to her home and found that her neighbours were all wearing face masks as protection. The woman’s children were not at home. Only her mother-in-law and her husband were present, but she looked healthy. The medical team has taken the woman and a man to the hospital.
