The restrictions include a 9 p.m. curfew, the limitation of meetings to five people and the closure of restaurants, parks, shopping centers and recreation establishments.

According to the Thai Chamber of Commerce, expanding lockdown measures will cost the national economy between 9 and 12 billion US dollars. The territory subject to the aforementioned regulations contributes 70 to 80 percent of the country’s production.

The Ministry of Health notified this Tuesday 18,901 cases, very close to the record of 18,912 three days ago, with the total increasing to 652,185, the fourth highest figure in Southeast Asia.

The third and current wave of SARS-CoV-2, associated with the Delta strain, is already responsible for 99 percent of deaths and 95 percent of infected.

The Finance Ministry lowered its forecast for economic growth from 2.3 to 1.3 percent last week and for the third time this year.
