A Thai man who was involved in a motorcycle accident and was able to warn emergency services not to come near him because of the feared virus was praised for his honesty.
He was also honest about his situation when the local rescue team arrived, which is much appreciated as there have been instances where people infected with Covid19 virus deliberately kept their mouth shut.
The concealment of this disease is therefore a major risk in spreading the virus to the local population and officials who help them.
The Satcha Phutthatham Foundation of Thailand in Kabin Buri District, Prachinburi Province, posted a message about the incident saying: “Thank you for your honesty”
Last Sunday, at 09:20 AM, the Satcha Phutthatham Foundation received the report via the radio centre about an accident on road No. 304 connecting Kabin Buri with Nakhon Ratchasima province.
The accident site is near Huay Krabok Bridge in Nadee District, Prachin Buri Province. The foundation’s radio station has prepared a team to inspect the scene of the incident. The team found a red motorcycle with a license plate from Rayong Province on the road.
The motorcycle had flipped over, with the rider seriously injured, but he was conscious when the team found him.
The victim immediately informed the emergency team that he was infected with the Covid19 virus and that he was travelling to his hometown in Chaiyaphum province to recover, however, this accident happened to him on the way.
Volunteers working at the time, the foundation and related officials thank everyone who assisted in the incident.”
Channel 3 News reported that the man yelled at good citizens who tried to help the man, telling them not to go near him because he had Covid19.
He told them that he was travelling to his home from Chonburi province for recovery. Since he did not hide the fact, team members wore personal protective equipment before taking him to the hospital and took the necessary safety precautions.
