Today there are another 2,438 new Covid-19 infections in Thailand. Meanwhile the BMA have announced the closure of 31 additional business types in Bangkok as of midnight tonight.

The number is a sight drop on yesterday’s total of 2,839 new infections. But Sunday’s totals are often lower due to the reporting from provinces.

Today’s numbers show that Thailand’s Covid experience is far from being a ‘foreign’ problem… only 3,271 Covid infections, out of the total of over 55,000, have come from overseas. The rest are all local transmissions.

24,207 people in state care
• 19,274 in public hospitals
• 4,933 in field hospitals
507 people in a serious condition
138 on ventilators

Meanwhile, provincial governors are being given the powers to impose tougher measures, including targeted curfews under new guidelines to be issued by the PM Prayut Chan-o-cha.

From midnight tonight a lot more services, public spaces and businesses around Bangkok will be closed. Additionally events will be limited to just 20 people, down from the former limitation of 50 people. Face mask-wearing will be enforced with a fine of 20,000 baht, a situation that is now in force in 42 other provinces around the country.

But there is no curfew, although shopping centres must now close at 8pm, supermarkets at 9pm and convenience stores will have to close at 10pm until 4am.

Here is a list of the businesses, public spaces and service that will have to close from midnight tonight…
