On 18th May 2020, Pol.Gen. Aswin Kwanmuang, Governor of Bangkok, joined the meeting of the BMA’s Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration, No. 43/2020. The meeting had directed the BMA City Law Enforcement Department, district offices together with police officers from the police stations in the area and the BMA Internal Security Operations Command to inspect and give advice to department stores, shopping malls and community malls. All involved agencies must make strict plan for inspection and advice covering all types of establishments and activity places.
As for measure for restricting and controlling of the number of service users or customers, each establishment was directed to place “QR code of Thai Chana platform” at the entrances and customers must use their mobile phones to scan the codes to check in before entering the registered shops. This was considered an important process in practicing social distancing which does not affect the violation of the right to privacy. The user’s information gathered from “QR code of Thai Chana platform” will only be kept at Department of Disease Control and will be used for disease control purpose only.
