This effort is to prevent the spread of Covid-19 as these individuals may have been in contact with an infected Egyptian soldier who was visiting the province.
The letter, signed by Interior Ministry’s permanent secretary Chatchai Promlert, instructed provincial governors to immediately find out who in their province had visited Rayong during the period the infected soldier was visiting different venues in the province’s main city.
“Provincial governors must proceed in line with measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 if they find people who were in contact with the patient in Rayong,” the letter read.
