The monks in Songkhla province wear PPE suits to perform funeral rites

Phra Pholkrit Kaewmontri, a monk from Hat Yai Nai Temple in Songkhla Province, posted a photo on his Facebook page yesterday that he and his faithful temple colleagues were wearing white PPE suits.

He wrote that a young couple in their 20s had come to him to ask if I would arrange a funeral ceremony in the temple for the father of the woman who died of Covid-19

“They said they had nowhere else to go because other temples didn’t want to get started while her mother was still being treated in hospital.”

Phra Pholkrit wrote that he contacted the provincial health department who ordered him to wear PPE suits during the funeral to prevent the virus from spreading.
