A sudden surge in coronavirus cases has resulted in the Bangkok government deciding to close down 196 entertainment avenues for a span of two weeks.
These venues would be closed from April 6th till April 19th. Some of these venues are located in places where around 100 people have tested positive for the virus in recent days, said Asawin Kwanmuang, governor of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration.
“We will close entertainment venues in three districts, while other venues where cases are found will be individually closed.” Asawin told reporters.
The capital has successfully been curbing the spread of virus by taking necessary precautions. Only 95 deaths have been reported since the pandemic began.
