Korat closes malls, public places

In the wake of restrictions placed on Bangkok and surrounding provinces, an order has been issued to temporarily shut down shopping malls and others venues considered high risks for the Covic-19 spread in this major northeastern province, effective from Sunday to April 12.

All shopping malls — except supermarket zones, pharmacies or zones selling daily necessities and food outlets offering take-out and delivery — must close on Sunday under the order issued on Saturday by governor Wichian Chantaranothai.

The closure order also affects many other venues: cinemas, Thai traditional massage parlours, Internet shops, karaoke joints, water parks, swimming pools, restaurants excepting take-out and delivery, beauty salons, barber shops, gyms and sports centres, horse-racing courses, cock-fighting rings, boxing stadiums, snooker and billiards shops and cattle markets.

As of March 21, Nakhon Ratchasima reported five coronavirus infections.
