Thai Prime Minister Prayut urged people to cooperate and isolate at home as much as possible, otherwise the government must implement strict lockdown measures to stop the spread of the epidemic.
According to reports, on the 4th, 745 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were reported in Thailand, of which 729 were local infectious diseases.
The cumulative number of confirmed cases increased to 8,439.
In the middle of last month, an outbreak of infection in an aquatic market near Bangkok, Thailand, triggered a new wave of epidemics.
More than half of the country’s 77 provinces found confirmed cases related to the infection group.
The Thai government has declared 28 provinces, including Bangkok, a high-risk area for the novel coronavirus, and requires people to work from home as much as possible and stop gatherings and cross-government travel.
Thai Prime Minister Prayut said on the 4th that the Thai government is concerned about adopting stricter epidemic prevention measures, which may damage the economy, so he called on people not to go out as much as possible to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Bangkok, with a population of more than 10 million, ordered restaurants and street vendors to stop eating in-store or stalls from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. from the 5th, and takeout will not be affected.
In the 28 provinces classified as high-risk areas, restaurants are prohibited from selling alcohol, and entertainment places such as bars, gyms and boxing are closed.
The National School and Education Center is temporarily closed for one month.
The governors and yin of each government have obtained the authorization of the central government to formulate epidemic prevention restrictions according to the epidemic situation in the government.
Thailand’s coronavirus management center spokesman Tawisson revealed earlier that Prayut may extend the national emergency order to fight the epidemic.
On the other hand, in order to strengthen epidemic prevention, the Thai government is also actively purchasing a coronavirus vaccine, with the goal of vaccinating half of the population, about 33 million people by the end of 2021.
