SAT Governor Gongsak Yodmani revealed the organisation’s plans to handle the coronavirus outbreak at a press conference.

“These measures are not compulsory. We are asking the parties concerned for cooperation,” Gongsak said.

The SAT has advised sports associations at national and local levels to postpone events involving large number of people until the situation becomes better.

All SAT swimming pools have been closed for 15 days, he said and added that all SAT annual summer sporting activities, scheduled from April 1-30, have also been cancelled.
