A crowd of people who recently picked up food donations in the Don Muang district of Bangkok will have to observe their own symptoms, as they are deemed a group at risk of being infected with Covid-19,

Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said on Saturday (April 18).

He added that if they fell ill, they should rush to check their condition at a hospital.

He said he was shocked to learn about the mass gathering, standing in a long queue to pick up food donations without social distancing, which exposes them to the infection risk.

He also asked people planning to provide similar donations to come up with a good system to manage the way people stand in the queue.
