The provinces targeted for these special rooms include Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lamphun, Mae Hong Son, Phitsanulok, and areas within the Bangkok Metropolitan Region, aimed at safeguarding vulnerable groups such as the elderly, children, pregnant women, and those with chronic conditions like asthma and heart disease.
