In the southern district of Hat Yai in Songkhla, local people from different groups cooperated in cleaning the city’s central business district and also sprayed disinfectant at its municipal sports stadium to bolster confidence in public health.
Officials of PathumThani meanwhile, sprayed disinfectant around the province’s different government offices while also promoting information on self-protection among members of the public, emphasizing distancing from others and the wearing of masks.
At Phra Non Chakkrasi Worawihan temple, a popular tourism site in Sing Buri, the Big Cleaning activity included disinfection as well as the implementation of prevention measures, such as requiring visitors to wear masks and to maintain a distance of one to two meters from others.
