The Department of Health (DOH) will push for measures to curb the number of visitors to tourist spots to prevent a new surge in Covid-19 transmission as the government considers allowing the resumption of more businesses and activities ahead of schedule. Visitors stroll along Bang Saen beach in Chon Buri province which opened on Monday after closing for two months to prevent Covid-19 transmission. For the next phase of lockdown easing, it may be necessary to issue measures to curb the number of visitors to tourist spots, similar to limiting the number of people going to shopping malls, Dr Panpimol said. She added that local organisations should also come up with measures to control the number of visitors to beaches in their respective provinces to prevent overcrowding. The government plans to completely lift the lockdown on all businesses and activities on July 1 across the country.
