Bars and nightclubs are linked to the majority of Covid-19 cases reported in Bangkok over the past month. Data from Thailand’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration show that nearly two-thirds of the recent wave of Covid-19 infections in Bangkok traced back to entertainment venues.

In late February, Bangkok was reclassified from a “red” zone to an “orange” zone, allowing alcohol to be served again and bars to reopen, as long as they closed by 11pm each night, although some venues stayed open past 11pm. Nightlife in Bangkok was nearly back to normal last month, with some nightclubs and bars operating until 2am. In late March, new Covid-19 clusters were reported in Bangkok’s Thong Lor nightlife district and many of the patients had hopped from venue to venue.

2,227 Covid-19 infections in Bangkok are linked to entertainment venues followed by 278 linked to family clusters and 203 linked to workplace clusters, according to the CCSA. 199 cases in Bangkok are linked to other provinces and 89 cases are linked to quarantine facilities.

Other cases in Bangkok include…

  • 78 cases linked to banquets and ceremonies
  • 77 cases linked to hospitals
  • 74 cases linked to markets
  • 74 cases linked to restaurants
  • 55 cases linked to stores
  • 32 cases linked to gyms and sports venues
  • 22 cases linked to the police station
  • 17 cases linked to educational institutions
  • 11 cases linked to prisons
  • 10 cases linked to religious places
  • 9 cases linked to condominiums
  • 9 cases linked beauty salons, massage shops and spas
  • 6 cases linked to public transportation

    How could any be linked to swimming pools if the pools are closed, @Stardust?

    @simon small: Well obviously Stardust meant 0 linked to swimming pools BEFORE they closed the swimming pools as well as entertainment venues and the rest of it.

    What a surprise, but then all the Bangkok hi-sos are exempt from the Covid rules.

    @Henry Ford – If Covid will hurt anyone, I hope it runs through the hi-so class and devastates them. The selfish bastards.
