Huai Khwang fresh market in Bangkok was ordered closed for seven days on Monday, after two employees were found to be infected with COVID-19.

The Din Daeng district office, which ordered the closure, also declared the market off-limits to all outsiders, while those living inside the market area are prohibited from leaving.

The district’s health officials will conduct screening of about 300 traders and employees, many of them migrant workers from Myanmar, on Thursday.
