Anyone who lives in Bangkok and fails to report their presence at the hotel or mall where the infected Egyptian soldier stayed and visited last week could face a fine of 20,000 baht, according to the Deputy Governor of Bangkok, Sopon Pisutthiwong.
The Deputy Governor, who is also the Director of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s (BMA) Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said that family members who are aware of their relatives’ visits and do not report it could also face a fine.
The warning applies to anyone whose home registration in Bangkok or who permanently lives in Bangkok and stayed at DVaree Central Hotel July 8th and July 11th or visited Laemtong mall on July 10th.
If any Bangkok resident was at the Rayong locations on the dates specified, they should contact the emergency center on 09 4386 0051, the Erawan center hotline on 1646, or a hospital or healthcare facility run by the BMA.
Pol Lt Gen Pisutthiwong said that anyone who fails to inform the BMA of a visit to Rayong on the dates specified would face a fine of 20,000 baht under Section 50 of the Disease Control Act.
To date, thousands of people who were at the same locations as the infected Egyptian soldier have been tested for covid-19 without any positive results.
