The government and the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration is coding the 77 provinces of Thailand into colours. From green, where no Covid-19 cases have been found, up to red, where new, infected patients are discovered in the past 7 days.

The National Security Council is expected to present a proposal tomorrow to possibly extend the Emergency Decree, Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakan expects the government to ease some measures and allow people to exercise or move about in public areas with greater freedom.

His remarks come after a meeting with Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul and other authorities discussed preparations to be made if the government eases measures in some provinces.

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration and Thai cabinet are poised to make some decisions on Tuesday about the future of the Emergency Decree, possible easing of restrictions in some provinces and the way forward for a possible return to limited domestic flights.

The colour-coding will likely be used to decide which provinces will see an easing of restrictions first, and the ones that will continue to have restrictions and curfews imposed after April 30.

Under the Thailand colour coding…

Nan, Kamphaeng Phet, Chainat, Trat, Phichit, Sing Buri, Ang Thong, Bueng Kan, and Satun.

A spokesman for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration announced today that 581 Thais have returned from 5 countries.

A flight from the Maldives brought 125 Thais at 3:15pm yesterday, then 165 arrived from Hong Kong at 3:55, 175 arrived from Singapore at 5:25 and 45 from Spain at 6:55. 70 returnees from Russia arrived at Suvarnabhumi Airport at 10:30am.

The arrivals follow 234 yesterday from Kazakhstan, the Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates. All returnees face a mandatory 14 day quarantine, either in their homes or at state-provided facilities, under strict guidelines.

By this evening a total of some 4165 Thais will have have returned from 24 countries since April 4, not including the thousands who have returned across the land borders. The numbers are significant because, as officials have consistently warned, despite an encouraging downward trend in new Covid-19 cases (which has seen the numbers fall to only 3 today), waves of returnees could spike these numbers, although their cases are considered “imported” and not the result of local transmission.
