CHIANG MAI – Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul visited the northern province to give moral support to medical personnel and local people who successfully treated the patients of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

He went to San Kamphaeng Hospital in San Kamphaeng district where he expressed his gratitude towards medical personnel and local people who contributed to the treatment of 13 COVID-19 patients in the past 34 days. The last patient recovered and was discharged from the hospital on May 1.

“Cooperation from Chiang Mai people allows the province to cope well with the disease outbreak. Chiang Mai has not recorded a new COVID case for about a month,” Mr Anutin said.

He said that public participation would be a main factor for the extent of the second-phase relaxation of disease control measures.

“Strictly keep distances from each other. Those who can work from home should continue to do so until there is a vaccine so that the situation will improve. I believe that Thailand already passed the first round of the disease spread. If there is the second round, Thailand will be able to cope with the knowledge it has gained,” Mr Anutin said. (TNA)
