Entertainment venues carry the risk of Covid-19 transmissions, Dr Yong Poovorawan, an expert virologist at Chulalongkorn University, warned in a Facebook post on Thursday.

He said super-spreader events in entertainment venues had occurred in South Korea, Japan, Western countries and even Thailand.

“Entertainment venues are noisy places with confined spaces, so it is not easy to undertake measures to contain the spread of Covid-19, such as maintaining a distance from others and even wearing a face mask,” he pointed out.

Dr Yong said Thailand took about two months to contain the spread in entertainment venues and a boxing stadium during the Covid-19 outbreak earlier this year.

“Therefore, we would like to ask everyone to be careful so that this does not become an issue again,” he added.
