In addition, Thailand has recorded 9,236 new coronavirus infections, exceeding 336,000 positive cases since the start of the pandemic, while the total death toll stands at 2,625, according to the Bangkok Post newspaper.

The cabinet announced the reimposition of the curfew in Bangkok and five other adjacent provinces, as well as in four provinces in the south of the country from Monday, in view of the extraordinary increase in COVID-19 infections.

The announcement, made this Friday by the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) does not specify the date on which this measure, which is in addition to other new restrictions such as the closure of shopping centers, will end.

Supermarkets, banks and vaccination centers will remain open until 8 p.m., as well as the prohibition of gatherings of more than five people except for religious services.
