Four Thai women who had been working at a karaoke in Myanmar’s Myawaddy, across the border from Mae Sot were arrested in Mae Chan yesterday.

According to police, the four women, two of whom are from Nakhon Ratchasima, one from Nakhon Si Thammarat and one from Sakon Nakhon, cross the Moei River illegally into Thailand. The women were caught, however, after posting photos of them illegally crossing the border on social media. All four women have been detailed and are now quarantined and contact tracing has identified all venues and people they may have had contact with.
