A foreign tourist is being treated for Covid-19 infection at Buriram Hospital, according to a Facebook post by prominent citizen Newin Chidchob on Friday (March 20).

Newin, the former top political operative who now runs Buriram United Football Club, said the man arrived in Thailand on Monday and decided to undergo a health test at the hospital the next day. Infection was confirmed on Thursday.

Newin credited the visitor’s responsible behaviour to his use of the “Buriram Model”, which involves being issued a “Buriram Healthy Passport”.

The “passport”, introduced on Tuesday, allows authorities in the northeastern province to log the travel and health records of holders as they arrive and depart.
