With Bangkok shopping malls set to reopen on Sunday (May 17), Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul visited Paragon and Central World on Thursday to see if Covid-19 preventive measures had been put in place in the stores.

He said shopping malls need to be well-prepared before reopening because they attract crowds, which may lead to a second-way of transmissions.

“Collaboration from the public can help prevent a second outbreak,” the minister said. “The private sector must be prepared to help with economic recovery and adjust to the new normal.”

The Department of Health was also tasked to check on malls’ water systems, their food courts as well as launch an evaluating platform called “Thais stop Covid” to boost confidence in the authorities steps to prevent infections.
