BANGKOK, April 11 (The Nation Thailand/ANN): Chiang Mai’s Committee of Communicable Diseases has decided that everybody travelling from the five red-zone provinces, namely Bangkok, Nonthaburi, Samut Prakan, Samut Sakhon and Nakhon Pathom, must register on the CMChana application and isolate themselves for 14 days.

After Covid-19 clusters emerged from several entertainment venues in Bangkok and its vicinity, Chiang Mai has also decided to close clubs, pubs, karaoke bars and other entertainment establishments for seven days from April 10.

Venues that were open before the weekend were required to provide the committee with the names and phone numbers of all patrons.

The province has also decided to prohibit the serving of alcohol at all kinds of restaurants for seven days until April 18.

Thailand is said to be going through a third wave of attack in Covid-19 cases.

Daily totals are regularly hitting three-digit numbers for the last one month and most cases are coming nightspots in the main cities. - The Nation Thailand/ANN
