Thailand to shut down schools, amusement parks with alcohol sale ban to curb virus

Published on : Friday, April 16, 2021

For curbing the spike in the corona virus cases, Thailand is aiming to shut down schools, amusement parks with a ban on alcohol sale in restaurants. However, there is a possibility that this might put plans for reopening borders to foreign vaccinated tourists at risk.


Thailand is thinking to ban sale of alcoholic beverages in restaurants, close schools and amusement parks for two weeks to confine a fresh outbreak of corona virus.


The closure of bars, pubs, karaoke and massage parlors in areas including Bangkok, which is the epicenter of the latest outbreak, might be extended nationwide till the end of April, as decided in a meeting of the National Committee on Communicable Diseases yesterday.


Thailand Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha will chair a meeting of the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration today to mull over the fresh curbs.


The control measures have dampened the annual Songkran festivities, when millions of Thais travel across the country for family reunions and holidays, weakening private consumption and domestic tourism.


The new wave, which began early this month, has spread to 70 provinces affecting more than 8,500 people, some of them with a more infectious variant first found in the UK.
