Thai Bits: Thai Authorities Have Meeting To Decide COVID-19 Color Zones, Thai CDC Gets Tough With Thai Factory Owners Regarding COVID-19 Owners

Thai Authorities Talking About COVID-19 Color Zones Soon

Thai authorities will discuss color-coded zoning for Covid-19 control on May 15th, 2021 at the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration. Some restrictions may be lifted in some provinces, such as the ban on dine-in services at restaurants in dark red zones.
In the current zone system, all provinces are either orange, red, or dark red, with green provinces reporting no recent Covid-19 infections.
The number of cases is still high in Bangkok, a dark red zone under maximum control, but many provinces have reported little to no recent Coronavirus infections. Those provinces are likely to be reclassified with fewer restrictions.
The current zoning went into effect on May 1sy,2021 The CCSA will review the zoning and restrictions tomorrow. Many provinces are likely to be reclassified on the zoning scale, with restrictions potentially loosening up. The CCSA will make an announcement tomorrow.

Thai CDC Warns Factory Owners in Thailand To Follow COVID-19 Restrictions

Thailand’s Department of Disease Control is warning factory owners to strictly adhere to disease control measures because the risk of spreading Covid-19 is high in such densely populated buildings. The DDC director-general says the Thai Stop Covid Plus platform has surveyed 1,386 factories so far, finding that 76% of them complied with the measures. 24% of factories that were surveyed, did not.
There have been 250 Covid infections in factories in Samut Prakan, Pathum Thani, Samut Sakhon, Nonthaburi, and Prachuap Khiri Khan, most of which employ more than 500 workers each.
A director-general says that the workplaces lacked proper ventilation and social distancing was not followed, as well as factories that did not check their workers’ health on a daily basis. Partying and sharing of cups at the employee dormitories were also cited for spreading the virus.
TAT Governor Yuthasak Supasorn said last year’s 90.5 million domestic trips, helped by the Thai government’s stimulus measures, such as “We Travel Together” and “Tour Teaw Thai” (Travel Around Thailand), set the bar for expectations this year. However, last year’s receipts include the first three months of 2020, which were largely unaffected by the pandemic response and border closures.
