BANGKOK, April 8 (TNA) – The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) cancelled its annual celebrative events at the City Hall’s front court and elsewhere during the Songkran holiday as COVID-19 was spreading fast from entertainment places in Thong Lor area of the capital.

 

The cancellation took effect on the traditional bathing of Phra Phuttha Sihing Buddha image, alms-giving activities and Thai New Year greetings for senior citizens at the City Hall and similar events planned at district offices and its departments.

 

The decision was aimed at preventing crowd gatherings. The BMA also asked government and private organizations in the capital to seriously implement disease control measures unless they can call off their Songkran events.

Of course they have, they want everyone to travel to the provinces and have their happiness at home with their families there. 

 

This is like watching a train wreck in slow motion, so sad.

Shame they couldn't get this message through the thick skulls of the entertainment industry, and those who attend said venues who think their position in society makes them immune from infection...

So infected people from Bangkok will travel to Chiang Mai, Korat, Udon Thani, and all points throughout Thailand to celebrate instead.  Very smart.
