The spread of Covid-19 infection in Bangkok and its vicinity has exceeded the average rate globally with one infected individual passing on the virus to three and a half persons, said Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman for the Public Health Ministry.

The situation in Bangkok is worrisome as the spread is wider and more intense than in other provinces, he said , citing the three southern border provinces where the infection rate is one to two other persons.

He said the government's work-from-home measure had to be stricter by making an announcement of emergency holidays, but the public must follow instructions for a positive result.

The number of Covid-19 patients in Thailand has reached 827, making Thailand the 31th most-affected country.
