Kasikornbank (KBank) will by Friday (February 28) have thermoscan cameras installed at the entrances to four main Bangkok branches – Rat Burana, Phahon Yothin, Chaeng Watthana and Silom – and at the KBTG Building, and will bar entry to anyone with a body temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius or higher.

The preventive measure is intended to combat the spread of the potentially deadly Covid-19 virus, it said, acknowledging there may be inconvenience for visitors, who will have to enter and exit the buildings through designated doors where the scanners are located.

Surgical masks and alcohol-based hand sanitisers have been supplied to KBank branches and hygiene measures including extra cleaning and disinfection have been stepped up.

KBank has also introduced health and safety guidelines, plus strict regulations for employees amid the virus outbreak. No KBank employee has been infected thus far.

Bank of Thailand assistant governor Nawaron Dejsuvan said recently the central bank had already discussed the virus issue with all banks and they had stepped up measures to ensure the safety of customers and staff.

She added that the central bank is closely monitoring the situation and continued to evaluate the situation with the banks.
