Full Moon Party, the popular annual event held on Koh Pha-ngan in March , has been cancelled out of concerns of the Covid-19 outbreak, according to local authorities.

The chief district officer of Koh Pa-ngan has sent a letter to Surat Thani governor today (March 5) , informing him of the decision.

The government has asked state authorities to seek collaboration from the private sector to suspend activities which involve a mass gathering of people.

The related authorities on March 4 held a meeting with a Rin Beach business operator, which organises the Full Moon Party, on possible measures to prevent spread of the virus at the venue .

The meeting concluded that the party should be postponed until the situation returns to normal.
