No more shutdown announcements in Bangkok, for now


Bangkok will not announce any further measures or continue to shut down the city.”

This, from Taweesin Visanuyothin a spokesman of the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration.

“Due to the daily number of confirmed cases remaining at a stable level, Bangkok officials have come to an agreement that they will not announce any more measures or force people to stay at home.”

But he asked the public to cooperate with the government to help control the curve of confirmed new cases. Taweesin pointed out that tomorrow will be April Fool’s Day. But he asked the public not to post fake news of even attempt humour about Covid-19, otherwise, this could increase panic levels.

“Those who spread lies or fake news might face punishment.”
