A cafe in Chiang Mai province in northern Thailand recently filed a damage lawsuit against the US government for allegedly spreading the Covid-19 pandemic.
Sawet Wianthong, the owner of Ooh Cafe at DK Park food center, filed the case in court on June 26 seeking 450,000 baht ($14,572) in damage compensation, plus a 7.5 per cent interest per annum, for which he held the US government accountable, reports Xinhua news agency.
He said his cafe had closed and lost considerable incomes during the last three months due to lockdown measures against the pandemic in the tourist favorite province.
Thailand has imposed anti-pandemic measures under a health emergency rule nationwide.
According to the most updated announcement (July 02) by Worlddometters, Thailand has so far reported 3,179 COVID-19 cases, with 58 deaths and 3,059 recovered cases.
