                            5. Focus on the measures of eating cooked food, using a serving spoon, washing hands, using a cloth
                            mask, cleaning surfaces, keeping healthy, and checking various communication channels continuously
                            and consistently by the participation of the health volunteers and the public sector.
                            6. Continually hold meetings and command the provincial and regional levels and up to utilize the
                            operational mechanism of the Communicable Disease Committee at the provincial level. Preparedness
                            measures are set in places where COVID-19 may spread widely. The aim is for all relevant organizations
                            to understand and be prepared to respond to the situation, manage obstacles and create cooperative
                            networks inside and outside the Ministry of Public Health.
                            In the case of the Private Hospital Association Thailand, a letter to Mr. Anutin Charnverakul, Deputy
                            Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health, addressed the struggle of the shortage of masks. The Ministry
                            of Public Health has surveyed the demand for the use of masks in hospitals, both public and private, as a
                            whole in the country since last week, in order to present this issue to the Ministry of Commerce to alleviate
                            the problem. Today, the Ministry of Public Health has provided to the public, three masks per individual in
                            accordance with the policy of the Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Public Health to use in disease
                            prevention. The provided masks are different from those allocated under authorization to hospitals.


                            3. Recommendations to the Public
                            3.1 If anyone has symptoms including fever, sore throat, respiratory tract infection symptoms such as
                            runny nose, cough, reproductive cough, tachypnea or dyspnea within 14 days after departing from a risk or
                            affected area, they should wear a hygienic mask, wash their hands and seek medical care at a nearby hospital
                            or meet the public health officers immediately, and inform the healthcare workers of their travel history to
                            reduce the risk of complications from pneumonia progressing to severe or fatal outcomes.
                            3.2 A person with an underlying disease should avoid traveling outbound, where there is an ongoing
                            outbreak. If this is unavoidable, people should avoid making contact with patients who have respiratory
                            symptoms, avoid visiting markets selling live animals and avoid close contact with animals, especially with
                            sick or dead animals.
                            3.3 For the general public, please take care of yourself during seasonal changes and comply with the
                            recommendations “eat cooked food, use serving spoons, wash hands,” and wear masks while coughing,
                            sneezing, and avoid making contact with patients who have respiratory symptoms.

                              Coronavirus: Police in Thailand discover used face masks ‘being re-packaged as new’
                              As cases of Covid-19 mount, police raid ‘uncovers scam to sell tainted masks as sterile’
                              By Nicola Smith 3 March 2020 • 3:07pm

                              The operation in central Thailand’s Saraburi province was prompted by a tip off that the facility was exploiting the current face mask shortage in Asia because of the spread of the coronavirus, and was putting public safety at risk.

                              Officers found six workers sorting through the masks, ironing and refolding them to make them look fresh. They said they had received the stash from a dealer who had not revealed their origin...

                                increased to 3,519 people. Of those, 95 PUI were detected from screening at all ports of entry and
                                3,394 people sought medical services on their own at hospitals. 2,099 cases returned to their homes
                                and some of them are being continually monitored. Most of the PUI were infected with seasonal
                                influenza, and 1,420 PUI are still admitted at hospitals.


                                3. Regarding the international situation involving 73 countries and two administrative regions
                                between 5 January to 3 March 2020 at 7.00 A.M., there were 90,216 confirmed cases and 3,080

                                preparing the protocol for receiving undocumented Thai workers from South Korea
                                The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) revealed that Thailand has the 15th most COVID-19
                                cases in the world. They are preparing the integrated joint plan for receiving undocumented Thai
                                workers from South Korea with relevant partners.

                                by eating cooked food, using serving spoons, washing hands, and wearing masks. The public should
                                prepare to be responsible for themselves and society by self-protection and infection prevention. If
                                someone is at risk, they should reduce the risk of spreading the virus to other people. MoPH advises
                                people to believe the information only from reliable channels and follow their recommendations. Fight
                                COVID-19 together and join hands with each other. Do not put the blame on anyone else because
                                COVID-19 involves all of us.
