Patong hotel entrepreneurs urge mass media to be responsible after reporting tsunami rumor

phuketDr. Jirachai Amornphairot, the President of Patong Hotel Entrepreneur Club, said that the rumor that Phuket would be hit by a tsunami on December 30th 2010 had affected Phuket tourism seriously. He said this was because the mass media reported the news concerning this issue to the public.

To bring back confidence of the tourists Phuket government and the central government had to publicize and send a letter (which they had already) to other countries confirming the island was safe from the tsunami and it would be ready to cope with any disaster if it ever really happened. Dr. Jirachai also urged the mass media to report news based on facts not just a rumor.
