Cash handouts, co-payment scheme extended as Covid surge hits economy


The Cabinet on Wednesday approved more cash handouts via the Rao Chana (We Win) and Rao Rak Kan (We Love Each Other) Covid-relief schemes. Each person registered for the schemes will receive a total of THB2,000 before the end of June, according to a source familiar with the matter.

The government will also spend around THB140 billion for other relief schemes once the Covid-19 crisis eases. Under the plan, holders of state welfare cards will receive THB200 per month from July to December.

Meanwhile, the government plans to launch phase 3 of the Khon La Khrueng co-payment campaign covering 31 million people. Like the previous phases, the campaign will cover half the expenses of shopping for daily necessities. Shoppers will receive the subsidy via e-vouchers.

The moves come after the third wave of Covid-19 emerged in April, triggering partial lockdowns and more misery for the economy.
