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

Hilarious on the frontpage of the Bangkok Post, “Govt hunts for African visitors,” which contact those who are thought of at risk of the Omicron variant, drew criticism from readers as well as the government’s Covid-19 activity pressure. The CCSA made an announcement right now clarifying its efforts to contact travellers who entered Thailand throughout the past two weeks from any of the eight African nations categorised by the Thai authorities as a excessive danger for the Omicron variant.
At today’s CCSA press briefing, a spokesperson for the English-language abstract said…

“A particular 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 means mirror the government’s policy and/or strategy nor does it categorise any of the procedures the federal government has put in place thus far.”
