AYUTTHAYA: One more Covid-19 case has been detected in this central province, raising the local total to 43, with many types of business now allowed to reopen on Feb 1.
Patient 43 is a 53-year-old woman from Maharat district. She is the wife of a previously confirmed case, patient 22, Ayutthaya governor Panu Yaemsri said on Thursday.
The couple are vegetable vendors. They frequently travelled to Ang Thong in their own vehicle, bought vegies there and delivered them to heir son in Samut Prakan, who sold them at Namdaeng market.
Sometimes, they stayed overnight at their son’s house in Samut Prakan, the governor said.
Of the total 43 cases in the province, 39 have recovered and been discharged. Four are under treatment, he said.
The provincial communicable disease committee, chaired by the governor, on Thursday decided to allow many types of business to reopen from Feb 1.
They include care centres for the elderly, games shops, internet shops, tutoring schools, driving schools, fitness clubs and boxing camps, Mr Panu said.
However, staff of those places must undergo training and strictly abide by health regulations. Officials will inspect those premises after they reopen, he said.
