More than 28 million Thais have registered to receive the government's Bt5,000 cash handout before the system closed at midnight.

Five million have already been approved.
A total of 28,849,725 people who are affected by the emergency decree to prevent the spread of Covid-19 have requested cash assistance from the government via registration on www.เราไม่ทิ้งกัน.com website.
The Cabinet decided to extend the number of recipients from 9 million to 14 million for the period April to June to help registrants who were categorised as farmers.
This extension will now cover students who work on part-time jobs. The scheme will cost the state approximately Bt210 billion.
