As the number of Covid-19 infections in Thailand continues to rise, a number of provinces have set what some call “soft curfews,” requesting that residents stay at home during late and early hours, unless travel is essential.

Earlier reports said some provinces have set curfews, but a spokesperson for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration said the times set by provincial governments are not curfews. Natapanu Nopakun, also the deputy spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, says they are requests from provinces asking for the “kind cooperation” of people to stay at home during late night and early morning hours.

“We have never announced a curfew.”

Recently, PM Prayut Chan-o-cha gave provincial governments the power to set local curfews as well as other disease control measures in an effort to prevent gathering and slow the spread of the coronavirus. The majority of Thailand’s 77 provinces have set orders requiring people to wear face masks while in public places. Violators face a fine of up to 20,000 baht.

The Thai government continues to promote the “DMHTT” precautions which include distancing (D), mask-wearing (M), handwashing (H), temperature check (T) and tracing through the Thai Chana application (T).

    Wed pm report: ‘ . . . a number of provinces have imposed night-time curfews . . . ‘

    So, despite this morning’s report re the PM’s taking full control of anti-CV-19 measures, the provincial heads are still calling the shots re curfews, etc.

    All very confusing re the extent of the PM/Covid Czar’s powers.

    Wearing masks ineffective order but at least something that makes money.
