A Chinese woman has been arrested after she was allegedly found spitting repeatedly inside a bus that she took from Bangkok to Saraburi. She later rode a train to Bangkok and started spitting again.
The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation publicized a picture of officials in protective suit arresting the woman after responding to a complaint on social media that a Chinese woman was spitting in public transportation.
The woman reportedly wandered around the bus and spit at different spots. Even more causing concern among other passengers amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
When the bus arrived at the terminal, Public Health officials tried to take her to test for Covid-19 but she refused to comply. Saying that she would stay for only a few days and walked away, the Nation reports.
She was spotted again on a train to Bangkok, and this time the officials decided to arrest her. The woman resisted and tried to spit on the officials. They pushed her to the ground and closed her mouth.
The woman was quarantined yesterday night and was sent to be tested for Covid-19 to Siriraj Hospital in the morning. She was tested negative for Covid-19 infection.
