Thailand & Pattaya News, from Fabulous 103fm (30 June 2022)

Thailand’s FDA has given approval for the use of Evusheld, an antibody drug used to PREVENT covid. This is not expected to replace vaccinations but instead is used for emergency use on adults and teenagers,  and IS reported to be safe, by the manufacturer Astrazeneca, for patients with allergies, heart disease or who are pregnant.

Thailand News: Evosheld

59 tonnes of pork has been seized near the capital this week, suspected as being illegally imported without licence.   Thought to have originated in Germany, Poland and even Brazil, no word on whether it was safe to eat and the supply chain is being investigated.

Tax on child seats for cars will be ZERO for 18 months in Thailand as the government works to make baby’s seats and booster seats more affordable ahead of making it the law that all are safe in vehicles. No word on any clamp down on safety for motorbikes carrying children but for cars, the law goes into effect this September for all children under the age of 6.

Thailand news: Car booster seats

A 72 year old man found dead on a Buriram roadside DIDN’T die in a crash according to police who discovered knife wounds in addition to blunt force trauma to the head. He had been dumped with a motorcycle on top of him to replicate an accident scene BUT a check of his home found a burned mattress and traces of blood leading them to consider his son as a potential suspect in the killing. He denies all charges but when his elder brother arrived at the scene, police had to restrain him from beating his younger sibling and instead noted claims that dad and son had had numerous heated arguments.

Not bad for one night’s fishing in Nakhon Phanom. There, navy teams on the Mekong recovered 1.4 million meth pills AND half a ton of dried marijuana en route  here from Laos.  No arrests but huge losses for the traders who fled.

In Pattaya last night police attended an emergency call from a hotel where a 54 year old Norwegian man is reported to have stabbed himself. Staff told police that they heard screams coming from the room and made a forced entry, only to discover the man alone. Having been a hotel resident for 6 months they were in shock. A check of his room revealed the weapon of choice, together with a stash of marijuana.

The latest craze among Arab visitors to the city is driving local crazy, seeing complaints flowing into police of gangs of bike riders racing around the popular areas of South Pattaya.  Most using rented bikes, and all happily revving the whatsits off the bikes in the early hours of mornings. Locals hope police will investigate.
