Most businesses resume operations in Thailand

As Thais enjoy easing of COVID-19 restrictions, many remain reliant on food handouts from charities and local communities.

Thailand has begun lifting restrictions after a steady decline in the number of coronavirus infections.

But many people still need help putting food on the table and some businesses are expected to struggle.

The government will evaluate the situation every two weeks – determining to further ease the restrictions – or, if there is a spike in confirmed cases, they will reimpose some of the restrictions.
