Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said on Saturday (May 16) that the platform will be available for registration on Sunday from 6am on www.ไทยชนะ.com
The Covid-19 contact-tracing platform will generate a QR code for registering business owners, who can put up the QR code on their business front doors. The QR code will tell them about the number of people in their business places, and their services will be rated.
At the same time, customers can just use their smartphones to check-in and check-out at those venues. Authorities will know only the phone number of the users.
People who come to shops, such as restaurants or barbers, have to scan the QR code to enter, which will let them know if the shop is crowded or not. Moreover, ThaiChana can show users available restaurants or venues in wide areas, guiding users' decision in choosing places to visit, the spokesman added.
When checking out, customers are advised to rate services in order to report whether shops are implementing preventive measures such as social distancing, arranging gel for handwash, wearing masks and avoiding congestion.
Should anyone contract the virus, risk groups who come to the shop at that specific time interval will be informed via a message and they will be asked to test for the virus free of charge.
