People have been gradually returning to the capital from their home provinces since Sunday after a long break to celebrate New Year with their families.
The bus terminals are uncharacteristically quiet. The usual congestion at Mo Chit 2 terminal is missing. People who return or enter Mo Chit 2 bus terminal must check their temperature and get a hand sanitizer to wash their hands.
Transport Co said there would be approximately 65,000-70,000 passengers returning to Bangkok, down 20-30 per cent compared to the previous year. So far, no passenger problems have been reported during the trips and there have been no cases of infections.
The company said it is taking strict measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 by setting up screening points and providing disinfectant alcohol gel to passengers, registering passengers through the ThaiChana application to keep a record of travel history and speeding up investigations in suspected cases of infections.
