Nakhon Si Thammarat Is Under COVID-19 Lockdown

Due to an increase in local Covid-19 infections, parts of the Muang district in this southern province will be under lockdown from Saturday.
Kraisorn Wisitwong, the provincial governor, announced the lockdown on Friday without specifying a reopening date. Entry into the area will be screened at checkpoints, he said, adding that only those on essential trips will be allowed in.
The province reported 526 new Coronavirus cases on Friday, up from 378 a day earlier. According to figures from the provincial public health office, the Muang district had the most infections with 195.
The National Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) will include the most recent data in its daily report.
According to Kraisorn, the lockdown was intended to keep the pandemic under control in the district.
The disease has mostly been reported in southern provinces and Greater Bangkok.
Bangkok and adjacent provinces, however, have seen a steady decline in new cases, with Bangkok numbers dropping “significantly,” CCSA spokeswoman Apisamai Srirangson said.
During the previous 24 hours, 1,917 new infections were recorded in the four southern border provinces. That worked out to 17% of all new cases nationwide, up from 15% earlier.
