Several Internet users started demanding accountability from the Army after they learned the boxing ring was run by the Royal Thai Army.
On March 3, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha ordered that every public gathering location such as sports stadiums should be closed, but on March 4 the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium under the management of the Army was still open.
The stadium was sanitised on March 5 and despite the PM’s order, organisers still went ahead and held a competition on March 6 – the beginning of another round of Covid-19 spreading.
As of now, 103 visitors to the stadium have been infected with the coronavirus and there is a possibility that the number will soon increase.
