Apology for headline

The Bangkok Post would like to express its apologies for the insensitive choice of the word “hunts” in its headline “Govt hunts for African visitors” on the front page of the Dec 2 edition to describe police attempts to trace 783 visitors from southern African countries arriving since Nov 15 for Omicron coronavirus variant testing.

The Bangkok Post had absolutely no intention of conveying what many might have regarded as discriminatory or racist language.

The Post would like to assure that it is committed to promoting equality and human rights for all.
