Ms Narumon said the Cabinet decided the four holidays should be observed as usual, but people should continue to stay home to help curb COVID-19 infections.

4 Public holidays coming. People not working, something what these days helps to forget a bit of the misery in Thailand. 4 More days to make them crazy at hot homes, probably packed with family, but with none/little money, may be not enough food. And that all for just the 286 virus cases in this country. ( BangkokPost)  Reality thinking/handling?
