Bangkok city.

Authorities in the Thai capital have announced plans to lift COVID-19 restrictions, allowing some businesses, including shopping malls, markets, and hair salons, to reopen under certain conditions. This move comes as the number of new coronavirus cases slow, indicating a trend of fewer infections.

According to a report by The Bangkok Post, the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) said on Tuesday that certain businesses will be allowed to reopen in May.

CCSA spokesman Taweesilp Visanuyothin was quoted as saying that these businesses must be necessary to people’s daily lives and have a low risk of disease transmission.

He warned that the situation will be assessed every 14 days and “if an outbreak erupts, the business will be shut down immediately.”

Meanwhile, Reuters quoted a civic administration spokesman who said that “it will not be a return to normal like before.”

Among the places eligible to reopen first are markets, sporting grounds, public parks, medical facilities, and golf courses. All of these places will be regulated to prevent a second wave of the virus outbreak.
