3 Bangkok districts under maximum controls, closure of schools extended




Three districts in Bangkok were declared maximum control zones on Friday after Thailand recorded 279 new cases of Covid-19 and two deaths – one in the capital. 


Nong Kheam, Bang Plad and Bang Khun Thian districts were placed under maximum controls, said Bangkok Metropolitan Authority (BMA) spokesman Pongsakorn Kwanmuang.


Meanwhile, the closure of Bangkok public schools has been extended for another two weeks until January 17.


The Bangkok Communicable Disease Prevention Committee has ordered the following venues to close across the whole city from Saturday: schools, children's playgrounds, tutorial centres, nurseries, water theme parks, parks, game kiosks, snooker halls, cockfighting rings, bullfighting rings, amulet centres, tattoo shops, internet cafes, martial arts schools, boxing rings, massage parlours, and banquet rooms.


On Saturday, the BMA will meet with the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration to discuss its plan to ban eat-in food services at shops and restaurants. This measure is expected to be imposed from Monday (January 4), meaning only take-home food will be available.
