A total of 123 Covid-19 cases have been detected from clusters at Bangkok entertainment venues, City Hall reported on Friday.

Most of the infections were found among staff and customers at two venues – New Jazz Plaza (50) opposite the Mall Thapra in Thonburi district and The Freshy Plaza (47) in Bang Phlat district.

The virus spread to four more places that share staff with the two venues.
