Hotel operators say they are ready to control the disease and will request inspection by the district office of public health on a case-by-case basis. The order will come into effect on April 7. There is also an order to cancel all types of traditional events.
In Phang Nga, the authorities have sprayed highly efficient disinfectant at the Tha Nun Village Checkpoint, Khok Kloi subdistrict, Takua Thung district, because there are more than a thousand people from Phuket in Phang Nga, and germs may have accumulated at various points.
Disinfectant has also been sprayed at the dormitory of the Sports School, the Provincial Administrative Organization Office, fitness centers and various public service points.
