Phuket imposes overnight curfew

Phuket's governor Phakaphong Tavipatana has issued a directive for residents and the few remaining tourists to stay off the streets after dark.

The governor called for the 'collaboration' of local residents and tourists across Phuket to comply and stay indoors between 8pm to 3am each night.

It is not an official policed curfew as this stage but will remain in force indefinitely.

The only exception is for 'urgent errands.'

However it says strict measures are in force for people planning to travel to other provinces.

"Inspection will be strictly applied in the case of traveling to other provinces," the governor's order said.

The Thai government imposed a state of emergency which halts most international travel and restricts overland travel between provinces.

The Phuket Communicable Disease Committee announced another six Covid-19 cases, bringing the total number to 47.
