Thailand has issued a warning to swimmers and snorkellers as jellyfish washed ashore by storms
According to officials, steps have been taken to keep swimmers safe by closing Nai Thon, Nai Yang and Layan beaches of the famous Phi Phi Island on Monday, Xinhua news agency said. Many resorts have also posted warnings about the danger of Portuguese man o’ war and box jellyfish, and have also set up first-aid stations to deal with any emergency. The Portuguese man o’ war jellyfish resembles the blue or purple cap of Portugal’s naval soldiers. They are among the world’s most venomous marine species whose stings are painful and even fatal in some cases.
