The Level 4 COVID-19 alert, in place in Thailand since the early this month, is still necessary because the new wave of infections has not yet reached its peak and there are signs that new infections will increase in Bangkok and its surrounding areas, said Public Health Permanent Secretary Dr. Kiattibhoom Vongrachit today (Friday).

 

Although the rate of new infections appears to be stable now, he warned that it may pick up again after the easing of restrictions and because people are more relaxed in “sandbox” provinces, including Bangkok.

 

He said that COVID-19 infections in Thailand have not yet reached their peak, so there is a need to stay alert and people must strictly comply with basic safety measures to prevent another surge, similar to the clusters which began in pub-restaurants during the long New Year holidays.

Yesterday it was announced that the "test & Go" scheme would return because numbers haven't reached the expected infection levels?

Mixed stories again.
