Thailand has enforced a national curfew since April 3. All nationals except medics, emergency workers and personnel delivering medical supplies and patients, have been urged to stay at home. 

The national coronavirus response authority decided to extend the state of emergency for another month until May 31 after the curfew and other travel restrictions slowing the spread of disease.
