City Hall has delayed the opening of the new school term in the capital to June 14 as the Covid-19 situation is still worrisome.

Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang on Tuesday chaired a meeting of the Bangkok’s Committee on Covid-19 Situation Administration to discuss the opening of the first term of the new academic year following the rising number of Covid-19 casesin the capital.

The meeting agreed to postpone the opening of the first term at all schools run by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration to June 14.

City Hall earlier put off the opening of the school term to June 1.

Pending the opening of the new school term, the BMA will accelerate inoculations among teachers and educational personnel, said the governor.
