BANGKOK (Xinhua): A cafe in Chiang Mai province in northern Thailand recently filed a damage lawsuit against the US government for allegedly spreading the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sawet Wianthong, the owner of Ooh Cafe at DK Park food center in downtown Chiang Mai, filed the case in court on June 26 seeking 450,000 baht (about US$14,572) in damages, plus a 7.5-per cent interest per annum, for which he held the US government accountable.

He said his cafe had closed and lost considerable incomes during the last three months due to lockdown measures against the pandemic in the tourist favourite province.
