Pol Lt Gen Pakkapong said 326 others were in quarantine waiting for test results. One of the infected officers is the deputy traffic police chief of Taling Chan district and people close to him have already been quarantined, he added. The Public Health Ministry is investigating how he caught the virus, but Pol Lt Gen Pakkapong insisted the deputy traffic chief had not contracted the disease from a Covid-19 screening point.
