Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin is taking a sick leave after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

Government Spokesman Chai Wacharonke said the prime minister fell ill, has felt tired since last Friday and went to see a doctor, who diagnosed a COVID infection. He was advised him to take a rest for a few days to avoid infecting others.

He said he expects the prime minister to be able to return to work as normal on Wednesday.

The prime minister wrote an “X” post today, apologising to those who had been in close contact with him since last Friday and promising to return to work as soon as possible.
