A seminar for business leaders in Thailand has become a potential hot zone for Covid-19 infections after several participants tested positive for coronavirus, the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) said on Thursday.
Rungruang Kitphati, the spokesman of the Public Health Ministry, told reporters that the “Digital Transformation For CEO#3” seminar that was arranged on April 2 has led to three confirmed Covid-19 cases.
“There is a risk that the event could become a new cluster and this is going to become a tough job for the disease control team,” Rungruang said.
“We are recommending people that attended the event to get tested,” he added.
Online photos show that many people at the event were not wearing masks while they were drinking and there was no social distancing. Sources that attended the event told Thai Enquirer that there was an after-party gathering at the Cassette Music Bar in Ekamai.
Rungruang thanked the event organizer for informing everyone that attended the event about the potential for an outbreak.
