Chiang Rai officials confirmed today (March 24) that there were three Covid-19 cases in the province.
The three are a 35-year-old man who returned from Poipet town, Cambodia, and visited Thong Lor pub in Bangkok, his 58-year-old mother-in-law, and a 33-year-old man in Mae Chan district.


Chiang Rai Deputy Governor Pasakorn Boonluk announced that all border checkpoints have been shut, except for two – in Mae Sai and Chiang Khong districts – which will allow people to cross until March 25.


The first and second cases, which did not show any clear symptoms but had test results indicating a mild condition, have returned home after a hospital visit to undergo self-quarantine and wear face masks for one month. The third case had critical symptoms, including pneumonia, but the man’s condition is improving after he received hospital treatment.


Meanwhile, the local government asked passengers who travelled on the Bangkok-Chiang Saen Sombat Tour bus with licence plate 16-3473 Bangkok on March 21 to urgently report to public health officials.
