A wrong headline in a Thailand’s newspaper has landed the media house in legal trouble. The local newspaper has been reprimanded for “poor choice” of words.

The Bangkok Post was reporting about few African travellers who had arrived in the country and were being traced by the government with regards to the Omicron variant of coronavirus. However, the newspaper ran the story on their front page with the headline “Government hunts for African visitors”.

Thailand authorities have been trying to trace 783 travellers who had arrived in the country from various African countries since November 15. These travellers are being traced to make sure they are not infected by the new Omicron Covid variant.
