Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha was fined 6,000 baht ($ 190) on Monday for breaking rules to contain the coronavirus by not wearing a face mask, the governor of Bangkok said.
“I informed the prime minister that this was a violation of the rules,” Bangkok Governor Aswin Kwanmuang wrote on his official Facebook page. The move came after a photo of Prayuth appeared on his Facebook page showing him not wearing a mask during a meeting. The photograph was then removed.
The prime minister has investigated city hall into the restrictions, which specify that masks must be worn at all times outside of residences, resulting in his fine, Aswin said.
