The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration spokesperson, Pongsakorn Kwanmuang, announced the relaxation and reopening of 13 establishments in Bangkok under Covid-19 Coronavirus prevention measures this afternoon, January 21st.
The results came after a general meeting of the Bangkok Communicable Disease Committee over the concern of the spread of Covid-19 in the capital. According to the Committee, Bangkok has potentially taken control of the spread during the new Covid-19 outbreak faster and more professional than the first pandemic, from the highest cases found of 49 cases a day to 10 cases a day.
