CCSA criticises newspaper’s ‘hunt for Africans’ story, clarifies efforts to track travellers

Yesterday’s high headline on the frontpage of the Bangkok Post, “Govt hunts for African guests,” which contact those that are considered vulnerable to the Omicron variant, drew criticism from readers as nicely as the government’s Covid-19 activity pressure. The CCSA made a statement at present clarifying its efforts to contact travellers who entered Thailand inside the previous two weeks from any of the eight African international locations classified by the Thai authorities as a excessive risk for the Omicron variant.
At Verify ’s CCSA press briefing, a spokesperson for the English-language summary said…
“A specific newspaper ran an article yesterday that mentioned that the federal government is, and I quote, “hunting for African guests,” unquote, in Thailand. Let me state clearly and unequivocally that this headline does not in any method mirror the government’s coverage and/or strategy nor does it categorise any of the procedures the federal government has put in place so far.”
