Officer caught Covid-19 'elsewhere': policeMetropolitan Police Bureau (MPB) chief Pakkapong Pongpetra yesterday denied reports that one of his officers contracted Covid-19 while manning a checkpoint set up to screen passengers for symptoms of the disease. Pol Lt Gen Pakkapong said that the infected officer, who is based at Taling Chan police station, didn't catch Covid-19 while on duty -- insisting that the officer caught the virus elsewhere. Meanwhile, the government moved to allay fears of Covid-19 transmission among personnel at the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), based at Government House, after one official tested positive for the virus. Up to 30 people who came in contact with the infected officer have been quarantined. According to Dr Taweesin, the infected official, 46, had a runny nose without a fever on Thursday.
