Virus kills party mood in Khon Kaen


An unseasonal hush fell over Khon Kaen province on Monday (April 13), as the usually raucous Songkran celebrations fell victim to Covid-19 containment measures.

This year there’s no marquees or stages on Sri Chant and Khao Neo roads, traditionally the epicentre of Thai New Year celebrations. Most stores are closed, and those still open are receiving few customers.

The City Pillar Shrine was visited by only a few people on Monday while roads were quiet as most people opted to stay indoors.
