Thai PM falls sick, but it’s not coronavirus
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has cancelled all this appointments and activities today (Thursday) because of sickness. He has been advised by his doctor to rest at the official guest house in the compound of the First Infantry Regiment of the Royal Guards.
Informed sources say that he has been ill for the past 4-5 days and has been on medication prescribed by his doctor, but his condition has worsened today, with high fever and fatigue.
The sources also said that the Prime Minister lacked sufficient rest, because he has to handle several official activities each day, especially overseeing measures to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus in the country, including an inspection trip to Suvarnabhumi international airport on Wednesday.
The Prime Minister’s condition is not related to that inspection trip, said the sources, adding that, if his condition improves, he may be back to work tomorrow. For now, he is under medical observation.
