Songkhla school reopening sparks Covid-19 clusters


Less than one month after schools reopened in Songkhla province, some 300 students tested positive for Covid-19, with 200 infections narrowed down to Omicron, the provincial public health office said on Thursday.

The office said most schools in Songkhla opened in January after students were given their second shot of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Tracking shows most of the students had picked up the virus from unvaccinated friends and family members. There are some 120,000 unvaccinated people in Songkhla province.
