BANGKOK — As a result of coronavirus scares, two schools in Bangkok will be closed on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Samsenwittayalai School posted on its Facebook page an announcement of its closure after the school’s board learned that one of their students, a Matthayom 2, stayed at the hotel in Rayong where the Egyptian soldier who later tested positive for Covid-19 also stayed.
It was reported in several Thai and English news outlets that an Egyptian military delegation arrived at Rayong’s U-Tapao airport on July 8, and stayed for a few days before returning home.
The other school is Sainampeung School which similarly made the announcement on Facebook that “it will be closed from today until Friday after the daughter of a Sudanese diplomat living in a condominium on Sukhumvit 26 was found to be infected with the virus.”
The closure said the school is in accordance with Education Ministry regulations.
Students will learn online from home, while staff members with urgent tasks will be on duty, as usual, said the announcement.
