    Officials have arrested 8 more crossing the Myanmar-Thailand border. This is a development on the 29-year-old Covid-19 patient that illegally crossed the border into the country. 2 more covid cases have been confirmed in Chiang Rai Province, all 3 girls work at the same entertainment business. The Covid-19 situation in Thachiket, Myanmar is not good with currently a curfew in place. The Second Thai-Myanmar Friendship Bridge is still in operation for shipments with strict regulations on delivery drivers entering the country. Khaosod News reports that there are a lot of Thais and Burmese waiting to enter Thailand. The border is closed and no one is allowed to enter at the moment resulting in a lot of people smuggling across the border using natural passageways.

    Officials have increased security along the border but still, there are so many with a will to enter. As a result, the latest 3 Covid cases might be just the start if there are people still trying to break the law without proper quarantine. During the morning of 30 November 2020 officials arrested 4 Thai suspects, 3 women, and a man crossing the border about 400 meters from Pamee. Officials also arrested 4 more suspects in Mae Sot District, Tak Province. Villagers notified officials of 4 persons that were acting suspiciously. All were women, 2 from Udon Thani Province, 1 from Khon Kaen Province, and 1 from Phuket Province.

     

    All suspects admitted they went to Myanmar on 12 November 2020 to work at a business named DAT and stayed at Erawan Hotel. As the Covid-19 numbers started rising they decided to come back home. The suspects traveled through natural passageways, when arrested they agreed to be delivered to a quarantine center. Officials wish to send a message to Thais wanting to return. It is better to present themselves to officials so they can enter into quarantine instead of crossing illegally and then risking spreading the virus to others in Thailand. Illegal border crossing also creates great fear for people in the country and takes away income from businesses near the border.

    A 21-year-old Buddhist monk was killed by a wild elephant yesterday while meditating on a mountain in Saeka District of Kampaengphet Province, the Thai-language daily Khao Sod reported today (30 Nov 2020).

    Village headman Kraiwan Nontibut said the monk walked down the mountain around 6.00 a.m. each day to receive alms from local villagers.

    “He did not show up this morning, so I walked up the mountain,” said Kraiwan. “I was shocked to find him dead.”

Kan worries that it is highly possible the woman could’ve spread the virus. The business is small with a lot of people inside, there are 50 men working inside not including customers. The bar host is very popular with both female and male customers visiting the business every day.

     

     

    Kan reveals there is a lot of skin touching between customers and employees. No one wears masks inside and there is no social distancing so there is a high risk from the incident. The business opens and at night and closes in the morning with a lot of customers every day. Central Festival Chiangmai where the patient visited closed down on the 28th for a big cleaning day. Doctor Opat Karnkavinpong from the Department of Disease Control and other related officials reported on the 28th details of the case. The patient traveled to Myanmar on 24 October – 23 November 2020.

    A woman and good citizens came up with a plan to help catch the local peeping tom while he was in action. This is not her first time being secretly recorded by the man. The incident took place on 26 November 2020 at 22.00 at a gas station in Bang Bua Thong District, Nonthaburi Province. The local rescue team helped capture Wuttichai 48 year old while he was recording women use the bathroom. Po 29-year-old one of the victims asked for help to catch the man as he tried to run away. The suspect is now at the police station waiting for prosecution.

    Po revealed this has happened to her before at the same gas station in June of this year. She went to file a report with the Bang Bua Thong Police and asked to see the security footage. The footage showed what the man looked like. Many other victims who use the gas station bathroom have been secretly recorded by the same man. Po went to use the same bathroom again on the 26th and recognized the man standing in the gas station. Po’s boyfriend waited outside to catch the man while she pretended to enter the bathroom recording every moment on her phone.

     

    The suspect followed her right away with his camera ready. Po screamed for help as the man tried to run away. Local rescue team members happened to be in the gas station at the time so they ran in and helped. Members of the team and good citizens nearby all helped hold the man while they waited for police to arrive. Po advises other women who fall victim in gas station bathrooms and other locations to file a report with the police, don’t let the problem go as the suspect will only continue this type of behavior.

    A passenger was kicked off a taxi after she refused to talk about politics. Dear 26-year-old the victim gave an interview to Khaosod News on the incident on 26 November 2020. Dear jumped on a taxi wanting to get back home. While on the ride the taxi asked her about politics, Dear decided to not talk about it and the driver became angry. The incident took place at 6.30 on 25 November. She sat silently on the vehicle while the driver was listening to a radio station talking about politics. Then the taxi driver asked her whether she joined the protest. Dear answered stating no, she had just finished working. The driver then started to talk about how he disagreed with protestors gathering in front of the SCB building. He then asked what her opinion was on the topic. Dear informed the driver that she would rather not talk about politics, she was tired after just working all day.

     

    The driver turned off the radio, clearly disturbed by her answer. Dear stated “He told me to leave the car if I was unhappy. I asked whether he was kicking me out because I refused to talk about politics. I tried explaining that a taxi was supposed to service passengers, not kick them out. He then started yelling at me saying I was trying to act smart. He believed I was against his side. The driver pulled out a yellow shirt and stated he believed in the royal institution, but I didn’t care.”

     

    “I just don’t understand how he continued to verbally abuse me on the ride and kicked me out just because I refused to talk about politics. I couldn’t take it and wanted to get out. He parked and I was about to get out when he pulled my arm asking me to pay. I wasn’t going to pay at first because the driver was the one telling me to leave. But then I paid and told him to keep the money to pay a fine”. Dear went to file a report with the Khan Na Yao Police along with evidence from the doctor confirming she was injured when the taxi pulled her arm. Dear and the taxi driver will be meeting on the 30th of this month.

  • Learn Why Co-Living Spaces in KL Have Become so Popular

    Co-working spaces have grown exponentially in popularity over the last handful of years as the benefits they provide to small

    The post Learn Why Co-Living Spaces in KL Have Become so Popular appeared first on ThaiResidents.com - Thai Local News - Thai News.

    Co-working spaces have grown exponentially in popularity over the last handful of years as the benefits they provide to small businesses and start-ups is unmatched in the market. In a similar vein, co-living spaces have emerged as a preferable living arrangement for young professionals in some of the world’s most vibrant cities. Kuala Lumpur is no exception to this phenomenon. In just the past few years co-living spaces in KL have popped up all over the city, with more arising each year.

    If you are a young professional considering a co-living space in KL, you’re on the right track for a more comfortable and well-suited living situation. Below are just a handful of benefits that showcase why co-living is the right choice for you.

     Affordability in Prime Locations

    Fresh graduates consistently face the same onslaught of challenges when they are looking for a place to live. Equipped with a steady income, young professionals look to maximize their money when it comes to housing and prefer to save on living costs and spend on experiences.  Co-living spaces provide that money-saving luxury as you are dividing those housing costs amongst your flatmates. 

    Splitting these costs is particularly helpful when trying to find quality housing in great locations. Most young professionals cannot afford to live on their own and still be within walking distance of Lot 10 and Bintang Walk, though in a co-living space, KL can be right at your fingertips. Anyone who has lived in a megacity before knows the value of living in a good neighbourhood with access to great food and entertainment, and while usually moving to these areas comes as one earns more money, now there is no reason to wait. 

     Build a Network

    KL is the cultural and economic centre of Malaysia, and as a primate city, it attracts hardworking young professionals from around the country, region, and world. People new to the city often become stressed as they try to establish new social and professional networks. Simply put, it can be challenging to make friends and not feel alone in a new city. 

    One of the most attractive facets of a co-living arrangement is the instant companionship gained from living with like-minded people. Most co-living companies have detailed “flatmate match” systems that let applicants find the best living partners before they move in. This system fast-tracks the friendship process and provides ease to the discomfort of feeling alone, not to mention ensures your new flatmates won’t be weird!

    The extended community of people living in co-living spaces in KL is also a great way to create a professional network. In such a diverse and impactful city like KL, building a network of professional friends helps you grow as a person and a professional as well.  Who knows, maybe your current flatmates will become your future business partners. 

     If you are interested in co-living spaces in KL, there are tons of great companies providing killer rooms at affordable prices. The stress of finding the right housing and the right friends will be lifted as soon as you sign up.

    The NVI is responsible for the contract responsible for pre-ordering the vaccine and DDC is responsible for the contract to purchase the vaccine. There will be 26 Million doses of Covid-19 vaccine coming into Thailand. This first lot will be used on target groups of approximately 13 Million persons within 2021. Anutin Charnvirakul the Public Health Minister stated 50% of the population will be injected with the vaccine. Furthermore, there are plans to produce the vaccine in Thailand as the Southeast Asia vaccine manufacturer. The first group of persons to receive the vaccine will be those in their mid-60s. Altogether, Thailand is expected to use approximately 65 million doses.

In trials when the vaccine was first given as a half dose followed by a full dose, the efficacy rate reached 90%.
