A sense of normalcy has recently returned to Thailand.
Thailand has also allowed a trickle of foreigners back into the country.
This week, an Egyptian military pilot was confirmed to have tested positive for the coronavirus, after he breached quarantine and visited shopping centers in a Thai beach town.
Two activists who protested the government’s handling of the quarantine violation were arrested on Wednesday for contravening Thailand’s emergency decree.
“With the disease still looming,” said Dr. Taweesin, the health ministry spokesman, “we have to keep our guard up.”
