Social distancing at Skytrain stations failed miserably this morning (May 5) when hundreds of people found themselves stuck at BTS stations after services were hit by a “technical error”.

Pictures of Bangkok residents collecting at BTS stations went viral on the Internet today, contradicting the strict social-distancing measure ordered by the Public Health Ministry.

Some netizens even feared the gatherings might cause another big Covid-19 outbreak, given the high transmission of the virus among crowds.

BTS officials explained that there was a technical error on the rail line near the Siam and National Stadium stations, affecting Skytrain services. 

Technicians later solved the problem and the trains resumed running, much to the relief of concerned passengers.
