PHUKET: The woman found dead in her Patong room on Monday did not have tuberculosis (TB), said officials at the Phuket Provincial Health Office (PPHO) this week, despite news reports alleging otherwise.

The discovery of Thitirat Pholai’s body smeared with blood started rumors that the 33-year-old woman had suffered from TB.

However, the PPHO has no record of her name.
