BANGKOK, May 31 (TNA) – The communicable disease committee of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration approved the resumption of five kinds of business premises on June 1.
The committee said it made the decision because most COVID-19 clusters in the capital were in communities, markets and construction workers’ camps that were subject to disease control measures and their outbreak situations were stable.
The five kinds of businesses allowed to resume operations on June 1 and required to comply strictly with disease control measures are:
1. museums, science centers for education and art galleries;
2. tattoo, piercing and manicure shops;
3. weight control and beauty clinics;
4. health promotion premises, spa parlors and health-oriented massage parlors; and
5. public parks where gathering and eating will be banned.
Meanwhile, new COVID-19 cases remained high. The COVID-19 Information Center reported as many as 5,485 new COVID-19 cases over the past 24 hours. Of them, 1,953 people contracted the disease in prisons and 3,532 other cases were general people.
Since April 1, the total cases have reached 130,929. There were 19 new fatalities in 24 hours. (TNA)
