BMA tightens scrutiny on routes linking Samut Sakhon and Bangkok

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has set up Covid-19 screening checkpoints on routes leading to Samut Sakhon province to contain the spread of the virus.

At a checkpoint in front of Southeast Asia University on Petchakasem Road on Monday, Bangkok police chief Pol Lt-General Pakapong Phongpetra said that BMA officials would check the body temperature of all passengers on buses entering the capital.

"Meanwhile, police officers would strictly check the movement of migrant workers to prevent them from sneaking between districts," he said.

He added that officials had also set up Covid-19 screening checkpoints in front of PTT petrol station on Rama II Road, under the bridge on Phutthamonthon Sai 3 intersection and in front of Khlong Pittaya Longkorn School on Bang Khun Thian-Chai Thale Road.

"The BMA will launch more measures to support officials' operations," he added.
