Soldiers Patrol Burmese Border Amid Covid-19 Spike

Soldiers are now patrolling the border with Burma looking for people trying to enter Thailand illegally amid a spike in Covid-19 cases in the neighbouring country.

Dozens of Burmese workers have been caught in recent weeks trying to enter illegally across the rivers and dense jungle in Chiang Rai in the north of the country.

Officials fear that they could bring fresh cases of the coronavirus into the country.

Footage shows military personnel walking through the area to deter illegal entrants and catch any who have made it into the country.



Burma, now also known as Myanmar, has recorded 4,467 cases of Covid-19 and 70 deaths.

Thailand closed its borders on March 22 and government chiefs are now torn between keeping them closed and stopping the spread of the virus, or re-opening to international visitors to stimulate the tourism-reliant economy, which accounted for up to 20 per cent of GBP in 2019.

Prisoner Caught On CCTV Escaping From Jail In Guards Uniform

Prisoner Caught On CCTV Escaping From Jail In Phetchabun

A prisoner who walked right out the front door of Phetchabun prison dressed as a guard was arrested a couple of hours after making his great escape this afternoon.

Wutthichai Dechasitthanwat, 35, had been remanded in custody since July while waiting for a court case for seven charges of theft.

However, the suspect feared he would receive a long sentence and hatched a plan to escape from the jail in Phetchabun, central Thailand.

Wutthichai picked up a guards uniform and cap with a face mask to hide his features. He then completed the look by carrying a clipboard under his arm.

Incredibly, Wutthichai walked out of his cell wearing his disguise and oblivious prison staff opened the front doors for him – straight into the open car park and away to freedom.


The fugitive took a taxi to his house before riding away on his old motorcycle and heading for the north of the country.

Furious prison chiefs realised they had been duped when they checked Wutthichai’s cell later in the afternoon, which sparked a police manhunt.

Officers said they traced a mobile phone signal which lead them to Wutthichai who was hiding in an abandoned house in the same province.

He was arrested – without his disguise – and hauled back to prison where he now faces additional charges of escaping from custody.

Police Major General Atthasit Sudsanguan said a ”large scale search” had been launched as soon as the prisoner was reported missing.

He added: ”We are now investigating how the prisoner could escape without anybody noticing.

”He said that he acted alone but we will need to be sure that there were no accomplices that helped him.

”We are preparing extra charges against him for breaking out of jail.”
