Thai capital to lift more restrictions against virus spread

Some restrictions to protect against the spread of COVID-19 will be lifted in the Thai capital of Bangkok beginning early next week, the country’s prime minister announced Sunday. Enterprises allowed to reopen Monday are museums and historical sites, parks and botanical gardens, beauty parlors, nail salons, massage parlors — but only for foot massages — and tattoo parlors, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said Saturday on his Facebook page. Thailand is contending with a third wave of the coronavirus that began in April, and which has accounted for more than 80% of the country’s total 193,105 confirmed cases and 90% of 1,431 related deaths.
