Thai BIts: Thai COVID-19 Agency Does Not Want People To Travel in Thailand, A Factory Explodes in Samat Prakun

Don’t Travel Around Thailand, CCSA Warns

Health officials urge people not to travel as the number of Covid-19 patients is at an all-time high, and the fast-spreading Delta variant is becoming more prevalent. A spokesperson for Thailand’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration said during the daily press briefing, “the CCSA would like to encourage everyone to avoid trans-provincial travel at all costs.”
We urge travellers, if travel is necessary, to isolate themselves and to inform Village Health Volunteers or local health authorities of their arrivals as soon as they reach their destination as well as to follow the measures announced by the provincial health authorities.”
Domestic travellers are required to be tested for Covid-19 before entering some provinces. Thailand as well as Surat Thani, Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan, and Koh Tao require travellers to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test result issued no more than 72 hours before arrival. Individuals who have received both doses of Sinovac or at least one dose of AstraZeneca can enter the islands without being tested.

Facttory Explodes in Samut Prakan

A plastics facility exploded near Bangkok in Samut Prakan province recently. Several people were injured in the explosion.
Around 9:30 am, the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation and Bang Phli district chief Somsak Kaewsena advised people living in a five-kilometer radius to evacuate. Residents have also been cautioned to avoid inhaling the smoke.
Around 3 am, the Ming Dih polystyrene factory caught fire. Witnesses report hearing multiple explosions in the area. Ten people were injured, and two were seriously hurt. It was also reported that a huge fireball erupted from the factory.
The fire that turned the factory into a scene from a post-apocalyptic movie is still under investigation.
Pattanaka was able to see smoke from the fire almost 20 kilometres away.
More than 60 people were hurt in the fire at a chemical factory in Samut Prakan, just outside Bangkok. The Ming Dih Chemical Co factory blew up overnight, sending black toxic smoke into the sky.
By this evening, the flame-retardant foam was sprayed at the scene. By late afternoon, the fumes were heading toward Bangkok. Residents within a 5-kilometer radius of the factory were asked to evacuate.
Thai media reports say 18-year-old Kornsith Laophan died in the fire.
