Two of the patients, a mother and child living in Pak Chong district, have high fever, while a woman in Muang district’s Muen Wai area has sore throat. The governor is having a disease investigation team monitor them closely while all three patients are being quarantined for 14 days.

Wichian said he is putting in place strict measures to prevent the spread of the disease and has informed every community and village of the timeline of the three patients’ infections.

He is also calling on anyone who has travelled to Rayong or Bangkok to report to the Department of Public Health or a provincial government officer within three days.

“The provincial office has prepared state quarantine areas to take in suspected cases. Though the three patients have not yet tested positive, they are showing Covid-19 symptoms,” he said, adding that everybody should keep their hands clean and always wear a mask in public areas.
