BANGKOK: Thailand’s Cabinet approved on Tuesday (Sep 21) a further 27 billion baht (US$807.17 million) in relief measures and extended a scheme to boost domestic travel to the end of February, as the government deals with the country’s biggest COVID-19 outbreak to date.

The relief support, such as a subsidy on utilities, will be offered to welfare card holders, government spokespersons told a news conference.
