Bayu accuses Thai media of hyping news and creating panic, calling on the public to return to normal life
Thailand reported that on July 15, the Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of Thailand Bayu was asked about Egypt in an interview Whether the soldier’s diagnosis affects the daily lives of Rayong people, should the government provide subsidies? Bayu said that the incident was just a mistake. How to subsidize it? Instead, he wanted to ask who actually caused the panic for the local people and made everyone dare not go out.
The interviewer replied that it was mass media. Bayu said that since the media should report less similar news, even the media has no restrictions on the hype, and other people will certainly be more worried. No one can be sure whether the epidemic will spread again among Thais, so everyone should take this as a warning. As for the granting of subsidies, he wanted to know who should pay them, those hawkers who could not sell their goods because of panic or other people who had no business because of panic? Furthermore, there are currently no newly confirmed cases in the local area. Therefore, he hopes that the media will publicize a lot of positive information and encourage people to go out for consumption. If something goes wrong, he recommends to see a doctor. This is how the society can function normally. Instead of asking who is responsible for what happened and asking the government for a subsidy, he also hopes that this will end here in advance, because there are many other things to deal with.
