BANGKOK: Shoppers flocked to Thailand's top-end malls on Sunday (May 17), eager for retail therapy as shopping centres reopened in a gradual easing of restrictions to revive the coronavirus-ravaged economy.

Hundreds of masked customers passed through temperature checks, disinfection stations and had their photos taken before they were allowed into plush malls in Bangkok.

In the main downtown shopping district, Central World touted a "new normal" of doing business on posters, while screens on the mall's exterior declared "We are open".

The shopping centre relaunch comes with Thailand's infection numbers slowing in recent weeks - authorities announced three new cases Sunday, with the total at just over 3,000.

In addition to all the above, those attending malls need to show a special QR code on their phones on entry and exit. I had not bothered to download the relevant app and so I had to sign in and give my phone number every time.

Officials will decide on Thursday on the future of the emergency decree, which is due to end on May 31, National Security Council secretary-general Somsak Roongsita said on Wednesday.

Gen Somsak said the meeting will comprise security officers and representatives from health and business sectors. Whether to extend the law will depend largely on the “actual Covid-19 situation”, he said.

Boxing stadiums, massage parlours, spas, cinemas, convention venues and tutorial schools are among the moderate-risk category of businesses and activities expected to be allowed to reopen for the third stage of Covid-19 lockdown easing next month.

However, pubs, bars and night entertainment venues will remain closed.

''The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) is expected to announce the list probably this coming Wednesday or Thursday,'' Dr Tanarak said.

Thailand’s government said on Wednesday that it had discovered nine new cases of coronavirus in the past 24 hours.

All nine were in state quarantine.

They were all Thais who returned from the US (2), Qatar (1) and Saudi Arabia (6) between May 12-26.

The returnee from the US came back on May 12 but was asymptomatic until 13 days after.

Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, a spokesperson for the Center for the COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), said this is not the first case that was found to be infected with the virus just one or two days before leaving state quarantine.

The CCSA will study these cases but the government will maintain the 14-day mandatory quarantine for returnees instead of increasing it to 21 days for now.

The new discoveries bring the total number of patients to 3,054.

There was no new fatality with the death toll remaining at 57.

not sure @thickhead79 got this wording or if it is his own (to make it clear and understandable), but the official announcement of course doe not speak of "sex massage parlours". However, it does explicitly excludes อาบอบนวด parlours (aab ob nuad or "bathe bake massage") from the re-opening. Those are straight girlie massage parlours where the girls, uhm well, help the customer bathe and give him a massage. Of course, everyone knows what they are, i.e. sex massage parlours as per thickhead's wording. But for all that aren't labeled as aab ob nuad (those have actually signs outside advertising themselves as such), it seems rather easy to me to just claim to be a health massage parlour, and indeed be common practice already, regardless of Covid and all....
