A Chaiyaphum partygoer was found dead at night on Monday, with a medic finding Covid-19 in his blood and saliva.
Pichit Paeyor, 43, was a construction worker in Pathum Thani province. He had returned to his hometown in the Chatturat district on March 28.
Pichit was a “partygoer by nature” and did not quarantine himself when he returned from Pathum Thani. He chose to hang out and drink with his friends.
Police from Chatturat Station were notified yesterday that he was found dead in front of his friend’s house.
A medic who visited the scene collected the man’s blood sample and athletics for a test that showed he had contracted Covid-19.
The officers are interrogating his family and friends. They also urged his family to burn his body today (April 21) fearing the virus would spread.
