Hundreds show up at Bang Sue Grand Station in Bangkok for a Covid-19 shot, paying no heed to social distancing rules. This has also sparked worries that a new cluster of infections may erupt at the station due to crowds.
Under present regulations, three groups of people have until July 31 to walk in for a jab at this site, namely:
• People above the age of 60 (born before 1961)
• Women who are over 12 weeks into their pregnancy (medical certificate from their hospital required)
• People weighing more than 100 kilos (aged 18 and above)
It was recently announced that people from any part of the country can walk into Bang Sue Grand Station for a free Covid-19 shot from July 22 to 31.
This announcement has attracted people from different provinces, who may end up spreading the virus if they pick up an infection in overcrowded circumstances.
