Thailand to further ease COVID-19 restrictions, shorten curfew hours

BANGKOK (CNA) – Thailand will next week shorten curfew hours and ease restrictions on more businesses, the government said yesterday, in response to its low numbers of locally transmitted cases of the coronavirus. Starting from June 1, cinemas and theatres can reopen, but with no more than 200 people at a time and with strict social distancing measures, said Somsak Roongsita, secretary-general of the National Security Council.  More details in Weekend’s Borneo Bulletin
