“We recommend using the 7-Eleven Delivery mobile application to shop for foods and consumer products and we will deliver them to you.”

There are plenty of businesses around Thailand either closing or heavily down-scaling their operations in the current Covid-19 crisis.Now, the operator 0f 7-11 stores across Thailand, CP All, has announced that it will expand its delivery services to help people deal with the Covid-19 coronavirus situation. A Facebook Post said the move “aims to especially cater to people living in shutdown areas and those who want to limit social exposure and use of public transport.”

The company intends to recruit 20,000 delivery staff to be stationed at 1,500 branches of 7-Eleven stores across the nation that provide delivery services.

“CP All will open more positions in the future as we plan to expand the delivery service to cover all branches of 7-Eleven.”

Meanwhile, many major supermarket chains in Thailand, some of whom are temporarily closing some retail outlets or opening for limited hours, already offer online shopping and deliver services through their apps, which are listed below…

The cabinet announced today that government schools will be permitted to reopen from July 1 instead of May 16, which was in the original school calendar.

A government spokesman says the cabinet acknowledged that the first semester of the 2020 academic year will have to be adjusted and schools will be permitted to start the semester on July 1, a near two month delay from the previously anticipated May 16 start date first proposed by the Education Ministry.

International schools will announce their own re-opening dates at some stage.

Today, on the weekly meeting with the Thai Cabinet, it was concluded and approved that the third phase of the economic stimulus will commence as of today. The stimulus is valued at 1.9 trillion baht and is aimed to relieve some of the impacts of the Covid-19 outbreak.

PM Prayut Chan-o-cha revealed that the third phase of economic stimulus measures consists of three emergency decrees…

  • The first decree will transfer 80 billion baht to 100 billion baht to the central budget to use as stimulus funds.
  • The second will permit the Bank of Thailand to use up 900 billion baht for moves to boost the economy.
  • The third decree allows the Finance Ministry to borrow up to 1 trillion baht, of which 600 billion baht will be used for cash handouts and public health and 400 billion baht will be spent on economic recovery measures (in addition, there will be another 80 billion baht to 100 billion baht available after rearranging the budgets of government authorities).

Meanwhile, the Bank of Thailand will allocate 500 billion baht in soft loans at 2% interest rates to aid the economy, especially to small and medium enterprises, with credit lines of up to 500 million baht. In addition, the BOT will instruct commercial banks and government financial institutions to allow SMEs with loans not exceeding 100 million baht to postpone principal debt and interest payment for 6 months.

Government spokesperson Narumon Pinyosinwat says “the Cabinet has also approved the Finance Ministry’s draft regulations to disregard import duty for materials that can be used to cure, diagnose or prevent the Covid-19 virus.”

The waiver has been in effect since March 26 and will be valid until September 30.
