Health authorities in Thailand have recommended tougher restrictions on businesses and people’s movements in 28 provinces, including the capital, Bangkok, as the number of new coronavirus cases rises.
The measures, which need final approval from Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, include suspending some businesses and crowded activities that pose infection risks to the public, while recommending people in these provinces work from home and avoid unnecessary travel out of their province.
With the prime minister’s approval, the new measures would start to come into effect on Monday and could be implemented until the end
