Bangkok’s MRT subway has eased social-distancing rules on board its overcrowded trains to make all seats available amid an increase of passenger volume. Bangkok Expressway and Metro Plc., the operator of MRT and the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand, said that the easing of social-distancing measures is to serve high passenger volume as the new school semester started on Wednesday. Trains are now allowed to accommodate 70 percent of their total capacity and passengers are asked to comply with the disease-control measures by checking in and out via Thai Chana QR code and refraining from talking while riding the trains. Marks on the floor indicate the distance commuters need to keep apart and the directions they should face. Moreover, they are asked to wear masks at all times, to maintain at least one meter distance at stations and to have their body temperature checked at the entrances. The MRT has been continually critized for its attempts at social-distancing passengers, especially in stations. Instead of allowing passengers to fan out along its long platforms, it has been keeping people stacked up in long, tight queues outside gates.
