COVID in Thailand Downgrades from Level 4 to Level 3
As the overall Covid-19 situation in the country has significantly improved, the Ministry of Public Health on Monday resolved to lower its Covid-19 alert level from Level 4 to Level 3, allowing most members of the public to resume their daily activities with fewer restrictions.
However, those over the age of 60, those suffering from an underlying medical condition which could be exacerbated by Covid-19 and those who have yet to be fully vaccinated will still have to avoid doing certain activities which could increase their infection risk, said Dr Opas Karnkawinpong, director-general of the Department of Disease Control.
The adjustment from Level 4 to Level 3 was approved by the ministry’s committee tasked with directing its medical and public health operations.
This committee works separately from the government’s Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).
Under the Level 3 Covid-19 alert, most people are advised to only avoid visiting entertainment venues or crowded places. All other activities that were previously prohibited and/or discouraged under the Level 4 alert are now permitted, Dr Opas said.
That said, people in the aforementioned risk group are still advised to avoid unnecessary travel from one province to another, as well as abroad.
Infections have stabilised across 23 provinces, while the remaining 54 provinces are seeing continuous improvements in their outbreak situation, which altogether indicates that the country is heading to the post-pandemic stage where Covid-19 will be officially declared an endemic disease, he said.
