Thailand’s new wave of coronavirus infections is more serious than the first, according to the spokesperson for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, Taweesilp Visanuyothin. The number of active Covid-19 cases has spiked to 1,920 cases, a record high for Thailand since the start of the pandemic.

Health officials are urging the public to follow coronavirus prevention measures like wearing a face mask. Taweesilp says that if the public abides by health safety practices, then there will be no lockdown.

“So whether or not the disease control measures will be intensified will depend on how much the public cooperates. If we cooperate, there will be no need to enforce the law, impose lockdowns or a curfew. The government doesn’t want to impose restrictions.”

The majority of recent Covid-19 cases are linked to the outbreak at the Samut Sakhon seafood market Talad Klang Kung. Since the spike in cases 10 days ago, the virus has spread to 38 other provinces.
