During shoots, the broadcasting business has requested that no masks be worn


News anchors have also pushed for the no-mask rule, and will use see-through walls to keep themselves separated from their viewers. The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission, according to NBTC member Pirongrong Ramasoota, will push for a no-mask restriction for game and variety television program shots at the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration meeting next week.

The social-distancing strategies and risk management systems used by production crews will be improved as well. Requests for not wearing face masks, antigen testing, and temperature checks will be among the changes. During a meeting with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the NBTC will present proposals from television companies before submitting them to the CCSA for approval next week.

Actors in drama presentations, as well as actors in other shows, should be permitted to remove their face masks. The broadcasting sector has prioritized healthcare, according to Diao Woratangtrakul, secretary of the association of digital television broadcasting, and many operators have established systematic antigen testing every three days as well as social separation.

Locals in Pattaya are hesitant on the new zig-zag lines on the roadways


According to local media, the zig-zag lines on Chaiyaphruek Road in Chon Buri’s Bang Lamung District cover roughly 15-20 meters. Locals in Pattaya have been surprised by the new zig-zag lines painted on the roads. On a Facebook page named Pattaya Talk, a local man from Pattaya posted photos of the zig-zag lines and wondered what they were for. So much so that a man wondered what they were after seeing photos of them on social media last week. When the man was learning to drive, he had never seen any zig-zag marks.

Others joked that the lines were drawn so that drivers would travel in a zig-zag pattern. Pitsinee Kuleksoracha, a Policy and Plan Analyst at the Pattaya City Technician Office’s Traffic and Transport Department, explained the situation, saying that the zig-zags are actually meant to warn vehicles to slow down. The markings are supposed to warn drivers to slow down as they approach a pedestrian crossing, according to several online users. Some people suggested that the lines would just make drivers dizzy.

The person who shared the zig-zag lines on social media was correct in asserting that they are not taught in Thai driving schools or included in any Thai driving manuals. That is why the lines are so perplexing to so many individuals. The painted zig-zags have been significantly raised in size so that passing motorists can notice them. This also serves as a warning to motorists approaching pedestrian crossings to slow down. According to the administration, the lines will help to prevent traffic accidents.

Since 2015, Thailand has used zig-zag lines on its Bangkok highways, and authorities have found that they effectively minimize traffic accidents. She claims that Pattaya has been using the lines since the Eastern Economic Corridor project included Pattaya and Chon Buri. To attract more investors, the program attempts to expand the economy, tourism, infrastructure, education, and technology. Rayong and Chachoengsao provinces were also involved in the project. According to Pitsinee, the zig-zag lines are well-known in the international driving community and may be found in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Hong Kong. More zig-zag lines will be painted on the Chon Buri and Pattaya roads in the future, according to Pitsinee.

Krabi, Thailand’s southernmost province, has issued a fire jellyfish caution


Morbakka fenneri, the “fire jellyfish,” gets its name from its painful sting, not from its pinkish-red colour. Yesterday, tens of thousands of tiny yet dangerous fire jellyfish washed up on Hong Island in Krabi’s Than Bok Khorani National Park. The jellyfish is likely to have arrived on the island due to a shift in wind direction.

Weerasak Sisatchang, the national park’s director, warned that fire jellyfish are extremely dangerous, and that being stung by one might cause terrible pain or even death if an allergic reaction arises. Apply vinegar to the injured region as soon as possible if you’ve been stung by a fire jellyfish. After enormous amounts of “fire jellyfish” washed up on the beach in Krabi, southern Thailand, red flags were posted yesterday to warn tourists not to swim. The fire jellyfish will die in 1–2 days, according to park guards. Visitors to Hong Island will be able to swim again after that.
