Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin also announced that he and his team may be at risk after a TV anchor tested positive on Friday morning.
The TV news anchor is from National Broadcasting Services (NBT). However the CCSA team daily press briefing team usually have anchors from NBT help with the briefing, the anchors working with CCSA team have already took COVID-19 tests and are waiting for results. They are now in isolation.
Dr Taweesin said he will take a COVID-19 test in the afternoon and then go into isolation. However on Friday night, he updated his More Taweesilp Facebook page to announce that his test had come back negative so he would not self-quarantine after all, only take the weekend off.
