Bangkok’s canal ferry service is joining other city transport providers in ramping up measures to combat coronavirus.

Marine Department officials on Thursday (April 2) checked passengers on the Saen Saep Canal route, handing out alcohol-base sanitisers to travellers as they boarded the boats.

Meanwhile, the service operator has arranged seating so that passengers must sit 1 metre apart, in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Public announcements at all ferry stops are asking passengers to wear face masks and stand at least 1 metre apart while they are waiting for the boats.
