In a bid to stem the spread of COVID-19 in Thailand’s eastern province of Chon Buri, Governor Pakkarathorn Thienchai has ordered the closure of more retail businesses and a ban on the sale of alcohol between 6pm and 6am.
The new measure became necessary after over 50 people in the province were found to be infected with the pathogen, making Chon Buri one of 15 provinces with highest number of infections.
The Governor has closed all beauty clinics, tourist destinations, nurseries and food shops, except for takeout and delivery services.
Social activity is prohibited in hotels, houses or public spaces and 24-hour convenience stores will now close at 10pm until 5am the following morning.
