No more touching: Thai mall installs foot pedals in elevators

The foot-operated elevator pedal system is also welcomed by some mall customers, who say they felt safer to use the lift without actually touching the buttons, reducing the risk of getting infected.

Thailand on Sunday (May 17) reopened malls and department stores for the first time since March in its second phase of relaxing measures as the number of new cases slowed.

Thailand has reported a total of 3,034 cases of the coronavirus and 56 deaths.
