Thailand has suspended 3 port borders, through which bilateral trades are going on, between Kawthoung in Myanmar and Ranong in Thailand starting from the early morning of 20 March, Thai
Ministry of Public Health announced.
According to the announcement of the Ministry of Public Health (Thailand) (MoPH), Covid-19 is a very dangerous pandemic and it is quickly spreading in Thailand.
So, Thailand will suspend the crossing of the goods and the vehicles carrying the persons via border checkpoints until the situation turns back to normal. The temporary closure is aimed to control the spreading of Covid-19 in the Ranong province of the southern part of Thailand.
The three suspended port borders are Ranong Customs Department Jetty (Lighthouse Bridge), Grand Andaman Hotel Ranong –Kawthoung (Thahtay Kyun Hotel), and 30-kilo Crossing of Ranong Province.
Thailand-Myanmar health staff are systematically checking both citizens, who are crossing the border daily through Saphanpalar passenger port terminal, to detect any Covid-19-suspected persons from both countries.—Kyaw Soe (Kawthoung) (Translated by Hay Mar)
