Curfew imposed over large portion of metro Bangkok

One of metropolitan Bangkok’s six provinces imposed a curfew late Tuesday afternoon to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

Nonthaburi province, which spills northwest of downtown, will observe an 11pm to 5am curfew starting tonight under order of Gov. Suchin Chaichumsak. In his signed order, Suchin exempted cargo carriers.

Bangkok is a special administrative region rather than province; the curfew does not apply within its borders.

No date was given for when it would be lifted. Gov. Suchin was granted emergency powers to unilaterally shut down any venues deemed necessary to contain the virus. Those powers are currently set to expire at the end of April but may be extended.
