Nonthaburi provincial authorities on Friday ordered Wat Boromracha Kanchanapisek Anusorn, also known as Wat Leng Noei Yi 2, a famous Chinese Buddhist temple located in Bangbuathong district, to be closed temporarily from December 25 until January 8.

“Officials will use the temple’s premises as quarantine location for persons suspected of contracting Covid-19 but are yet to show symptoms,” province officials said on the Facebook page of Nonthaburi Covid-19 Information Centre on Friday evening.

Two new Covid-19 cases have been recently reported in Nonthaburi -- both are Myanmar national female workers at the temple aged 54 and 46 years.

After the cases were found, 113 monks and staff of the temple were quarantined within the temple.

Health officials are tracing their travel history and testing people who might have had close contact with the patients.
