The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has ordered the closure of massage parlours and spas from Monday to May 9, as they are considered to pose a high risk of infection.

Pitak Yotha, one of the representatives, said his business has been closed three times over Covid, but the government has not offered any assistance.

He said massage parlours have never sparked Covid cases but are always the first to be closed.
