The Department of Marine and Coastal Resources has launched a campaign warning tourists in Phuket to beware of venomous jellyfish when swimming in the Andaman Sea after a number of foreigners were stung and required treatment. 

Authorities said they have erected 12 warning signs on 10 beaches in the past six weeks, with first aid information for jellyfish stings, Thai Rath newspaper reported on Tuesday, quoting Noppon Srisuk, the department’s director-general.
