Stadium debacle leaves bad tasteIt's nearly a month since the army-owned Lumpinee boxing stadium emerged as the epicentre of the country's coranavirus epidemic. Yet there are still no apologies from the army or army chief Gen Apirat Kongsompong. More importantly, they put the number of at-risk in connection with the boxing match at 500, urging them to see doctors and get tested. Netizens' frustrations over the boxing match have escalated, asking why the army-run stadium was able to get an exemption from the PM's order. With the country still making little progress in the fight against the virus, Gen Apirat, who is top of the army's hierarchy, should consider showing more responsibility by tendering his resignation.
