Bangkok governor Asawin Kwanmuang on Wednesday (April 1) issued additional measures to curb the spread of Covid-19, which includes shutting convenience stores from midnight to 5am as of Thursday (April 2). The governor also sought cooperation from street vendors.

He made the announcement after meeting with the Bangkok Communicable Disease Committee on Wednesday.

Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) spokesman Pongsakorn Kwanmuang said on Wednesday that eateries and convenience stores will be closed from midnight to 5am from April 2 to 30.

However, he denied reports that the BMA was considering a citywide lockdown.
