The Public Health Ministry will ask the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) to maintain the current curfew hours imposed in so-called dark-red provinces until the end of this month, says Opas Karnkawinpong, director-general of the ministry’s Department of Disease Control.

Dr Opas said this is one of a set of proposals to be presented to the CCSA at its meeting on Friday.

The ministry will propose an easing of some Covid-19 restrictions, to allow nursing homes to accept elderly people who need care, among other relaxations, he said. However, strict disease control measures would be maintained, according to Dr Opas.

The ministry has also agreed to adjust the 9pm–4am curfew hours according to the needs of each colour-coded zone, he said.

However, for dark-red zones, including Bangkok, curfew hours should be maintained until the end of the month, Dr Opas said.
