Bangkok –

  The Thai Covid-19 Center Committee is scheduled to assess the general Covid-19 situation and discuss preventive measures during the Songkran holiday tomorrow, April 8th.

Government spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana revealed that Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-O’Cha would chair the major meeting of the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) this Friday to discuss agendas to prepare and support the public travel and activities held during the Songkran long holiday. The working group would also discuss the operations of all related departments during the festival to be in line with the CCSA measures.

“The government believed that if people cooperated in strictly complying with the measures, Thailand would be able to cope with the pandemic although it was forecast that the number of cases may increase after Songkran. The National Health Security Office (NHSO) would operate and follow the Prime Minister’s orders,” Thanakorn stated.

Moreover, the Prime Minister ordered another 3,000 support staff for 1330 NHSO’s Covid-19 hotline to facilitate registration of all at-risk groups and patients, especially elders and patients with health conditions under the 608 group and children between 0-5 years old, to apply for Home Isolation or hospital beds for urgent treatment at hospitals.
