A Chaiyaphum partygoer was found dead at night on Monday, with a medic finding Covid-19 in his blood and saliva.
Pichit Paeyor, 43, was a construction worker in Pathum Thani province. He had returned to his hometown in Chatturat district on March 28.
Pichit was a “partygoer by nature” and did not quarantine himself when he returned from Pathum Thani. He instead decided to hang out and drink with his friends.
Police from Chatturat Station were notified yesterday that he was found dead in front of his friend’s house.
A medic who visited the scene collected the man’s blood sample and saliva for a test, the result of which showed he had contracted Covid-19.
The officers are interrogating his family and friends. They have also urged his family to burn his body today (April 21) as they are afraid the virus will spread.
