Probe to find out the where 72-year old was infected with coronavirus
Health investigators are still unable to locate where a 72-year old man visited and contracted COVID-19, because the man visited many places in the 14-days prior to May 18th, when he tested positive for the pathogen, said CCSA spokesman Dr. Taweesin Visanuyothin today (Monday).
Dr. Taweesin explained that the probe by health investigators is to locate the carrier of the virus, and the people who might be infected, adding that the barber’s shop in the Prachachuen area, which was ordered closed, reported that only three customers were allowed in at a time and no customers were allowed to wait in the shop.
Employees of a food shop visited by the infected man have been told to maintain home quarantine for 14 days, he said, adding that there would have been no need to investigate back as far as April 30th if the Thai Chana tracing app had been used.
Noting that there is one week to go before the third phase of lockdown measure relaxation, Dr. Taweesin urged members of the public to remain vigilant and to observe basic advice strictly, such as wearing face masks when out-doors, frequent hand washing and social distancing.
