Provincial Waterworks Authority (PWA) rushed to support people at risk from Covid-19 including medical workers, via distribution of free water bottles stamped with the PWA logo to Covid-19 vaccination centres and hospitals.
Mr. Somboon Sunanthapongsak, PWA Governor, commented on issues arising from the current resurgence of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“A lot of people are at risk of contracting the virus at the moment. As the Thai government is racing to distribute free Covid-19 jabs, attempting to cover at least 70% of the population within 2021, PWA finds it crucial to come out and support this crucial process.”
“We have begun distributing PWA free water bottles and other necessary goods to help ensure a smooth operation of each designated injection point, including participating hospitals in different regions,” the Governor stated.
He also gave advice on preparing for a vaccination.
“It is best to stop vigorous-physical activity and heavy exercise before the jabs. If you’re feeling under the weather, experiencing mild fever, or similar symptoms, the vaccination should be postponed for at least 1-2 weeks. Intake of soda, caffeinated and alcoholic drinks should also be stopped before having the vaccine. And, above all, strictly follow the Covid-19 D-M-H-T-T (Distancing; Mask wearing; Hand washing; Temperature; Testing; Application Thaichana) preventive measures.”
Mr. Somboon further emphasised, “Through our donation, PWA wishes to pass on love and support to healthcare workers and everybody involved for the sacrifice they are making in this difficult time. Any Covid-19 supporting sector experiencing a shortage of drinking water can contact any of our 234 PWA branches nationwide. Or call PWA Contact Center at 1662.”
