Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha on Sunday called for calm amid growing fears of the Covid-19 virus, prompting people to buy food and other necessities.

According to the Bangkok Post, March 15, 2020, Gen Prayuth said after a meeting to address the spread of the virus in the country: "We are not at the stage where we are. There is no need for food. ”

Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul is considering shutting down all entertainment venues to curb the outbreak of a cluster-related outbreak in a pub last month.

Gen Prayuth said the government would seek cooperation from resort operators in high-risk areas to close, and he did not rule out the possibility of closing them if necessary.
