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 on Monday decided to extend the state of emergency for another month until May 31 as the curfew and other travel restrictions have slowed the spread of disease. 

The Thai government has restricted traffic and activities to control the pandemic, and banned people from entering  the country until May 31 and only allows the entry of authorized citizens, who are subject to a 14-day quarantine after arriving.
