PH PROTESTS THAI NEWSPAPER HEADLINE

The Philippine government has sent a letter of protest to a Bangkok-based newspaper over a headline calling the country the “land of COVID-19” after it recorded the highest number of coronavirus cases in the East Asia region.

In a letter to Thai Rath editor-in-chief Saravut Vacharaphol, Philippine Consul General to Thailand Val Simon Roque said the description “is inappropriate, insensitive, and unhelpful.”

In a report dated August 8, Thai Rath said that 165 Filipino teachers arrived in Bangkok from the “land of COVID-19.”

Thousands of Filipino teachers work in Thailand to fill their shortage in the education field.

The Philippines has recorded 136,638 cases and almost 2,300 deaths as of the end of Monday.

The number of cases tops the entire East Asia region and ranks 22 worldwide.
