Amid COVID-19 Fears, the 67-year-old Thailand King Maha Vajiralongkorn is in self-isolation with a harem of 20 concubines in Germany’s 4-Star Hotel.
As most of the countries in the world have declared a lockdown because of COVID-19, Thailand’s king who is also known as Rama X has taken a decision to isolate himself from his nation.
For this, he has booked the Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl, a 4-star hotel in Alpine resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, where he would be living along with his 20 women who are believed to be his concubines. The detailed report about his stay as to whether he would be accompanied by his 4 wives or not is yet to be obtained.
Special permission was also granted for the King by the district council of German authorities for this purpose.
As per Thailand’s law, no one can question the sovereignty or the actions of the King. Thailand is a Monarchy and anyone who criticizes or insults the king has to face a punishment that may be up to 15 years of imprisonment.
Presently, Thailand has reported 1,388 Coronavirus cases in the country. A time when people need assurance and help from their leaders, Thailand King has decided to spend a luxurious life outside the country in the name of Coronavirus isolation. As there is no one to question his actions, he has the liberty to act upon his will and wish.
But to remember, a good king is one who stays by his people at a time of critical and dangerous situations. World nations are trying hard to handle the situation in order to control the spread of the virus as well as minimize the deaths caused by the pandemic. But the Thai king seems that he is least bothered about the welfare of his people based on his actions.
