The Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha called upon the general public to take care of their health during the rainy season, with public healthcare facilities all prepared to provide medical assistance to patients. In addition, the government has directed the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration to implement measures mitigating traffic congestion and flooding from rainwater. Road users are urged to obey traffic regulations and be considerate of others. Other provinces are asked to survey and manage their water drainage networks to prevent flooding.

On farm product pricing, the Prime Minister said he has been following the matter closely as it is directly related to the livelihood of farmers. The pricing of oil palm kernals and raw rubber have risen, with Talai palm fruit being sold at 3.05 baht per kilogram due to the government’s measures to reduce in-stock palm oil and achieve a higher palm oil price, while the third-class smoked rubber sheets are being sold at 57.7 baht per kilogram. These changes resulted from the government’s continuous measures to solve issues and mitigate hardships among farmers.
