Officials inspect preparedness of shopping malls for reopening tomorrow
Officials of the CCSA, the City Administration and police today inspected two luxury shopping malls in Bangkok, to check their readiness to reopen for limited business tomorrow.
Supreme Commander General Pornpipat Benyasri, in his capacity as the CCSA chief, led the inspections of Siam Paragon and Central Chidlom, two of the capital’s largest malls.
He said both are well-prepared and their measures are up to the required standard. He asked for full cooperation from the public by doing their part in observing good health practices to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Mr. Wallop Suwandee, chief advisor to Bangkok’s governor, reminded the malls of the need to keep the number of customers at appropriate level, to prevent congestion and to maintain social distancing.
It is reported that only the ground floor of Siam Paragon and some food shops will reopen tomorrow.
In Thailand’s coastal province of Samut Sakhon today, the fresh seafood market was crowded with customers. Mrs. Taksina Pintana, one of the vendors, told Thai PBS that she had been doing brisk business today, as most customers bought large amounts to last many days.
The market opens at 6am and closes at noon.
