At least 30 officials of the Ministry of Public Health are at risk of being infected with Covid-19 after a civil service employee under its management was diagnosed as a Covid-19 patient.

Taweesin Visanuyothin, the Covid-19 Administration Centre's spokesman, said on March 30 that a Public Health official, 46, who had attended several meetings showed symptoms of Covid-19 such as runny nose and cough on March 26.

The test revealed that he was infected with Covid-19 and was sent to Bamrasnaradura Infectious Disease Institute in Nonthaburi province for treatment.

He had visited Government House and had interactions with about 30 officials in the meeting but there was no hint that the high-ranking executive had any symptoms of Covid-19, Taweesin said.
