Schools re-open following Covid-19 restrictions easing in Thailand


Schools have been allowed to re-open in Thailand following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions.

Footage shows pupils returning to lessons in Khon Kaen province this morning (Jan 27).

Schools in the capital Bangkok were also today given permission to resume lessons with a mixture of limited class sizes and online learning.

Thailand has recorded 14,646 Covid-19 cases and 75 deaths as of January 27. Tourists were banned in March last year but an easing of restrictions means that they can now arrive if they have negative tests and do 14 days in state quarantine.
