Elephants spread virus awareness among Thai children

BANGKOK (AFP) – Thailand’s love of elephants combined with the holidays theme yesterday when four of the giant creatures dressed as Santa turned up at a school just outside Bangkok, complete with huge coronavirus masks.

Excited children from Jirasat Wittaya School in Ayutthaya, an hour’s drive from the capital, sang and lined up to have their photos taken with the animals in the annual tradition.
