cant-bear-to-eat-alone-one-restaurant-in-thailand-is-using-stuffed-pandas-in-order-to-respect-the-social-distancing-rules

In Thailand, one restaurant want's to meets new social distancing guidelines by providing lonely diners a bit of company - by seating stuffed pandas at its tables.


Thailand has relaxed some restrictions on businesses as the number of coronavirus cases slowed, allowing restaurants to reopen but with strict rules in place to reduce the risk of the virus spreading.


"Earlier we had only one chair for the tables where the customer came alone. But for me, it felt strange, so I thought I'd give them some company," said Natthwut Rodchanapanthkul, the owner of Maison Saigon, a Vietnamese restaurant in Bangkok.


Sitting opposite one of the panda dolls, diner Sawit Chaiphuek said he was happy to have some company as he stepped out to eat for the first time in months.


Another customer says that "The doll makes me feel less lonely eating by myself," mentioned Sawit, 25.

Siriporn Assavakarint, another customer, said the new seating rules often gives diners a headache, and the army of plush pandas made things much clearer.


"It's a lot easier to understand compared to other restaurants where people always get confused about where to sit and end up sitting too close to each other."


Thailand reported just one new coronavirus case on Thursday and no new deaths, bringing the total to 3,018 cases and 56 deaths since the outbreak started in January.


The day before, it reported zero new cases for the first time since early March, before the lockdown began.

meet-the-first-giant-panda-that-was-born-in-the-netherlands

A big panda cub (which usually lives in the mountainous regions of central China) was born in the Ouwehands zoo of the Dutch Renen (Utrecht province), according to a press release on the zoo's website.


It is noted that the cub was born on Friday, May 1, he, like his mother, feels good. The sex of the cub is not yet known, because they try not to disturb him. According to France Press, this is the first birth of a big panda cub in the Netherlands.


"At present, Wen’s mother and her cub are left alone. When the cub leaves the mother’s den after a few months, we can find out what gender it is. When this happens, the little big panda will have a name," the zoo said in a press release.


The big panda cub belongs to China - just like its parents Wen and Sin Ya. He can stay in the Netherlands for four years, after which he will be transferred to the People Republic of China.


In 2016, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature classified large pandas as vulnerable species. Prior to this, the organization attributed them to species that are endangered.

because-of-bamboo-shortage-canadian-zoo-in-planning-to-return-two-adorable-pandas-back-to-china

Two Pandas are expected to be returned to China from Canada's Calgary Zoo - because of a shortage of bamboo.


Canada has a limited supply of bamboo which could run out very fast.


The Calgary Zoo closed temporarily on March 16 amid the pandemic, reports Xinhua news agency.

Direct flight between China and Calgary, a city in the western province of Alberta have been canceled.


The zoo said it tried to find new bamboo suppliers to feed the pandas, "Er Shun" and "Da Mao", but came across many logistic issues.


"We believe the best and safest place for Er Shun and Da Mao to be during these challenging and unprecedented times is where bamboo is abundant and easy to access," Calgary Zoo President and CEO Clement Lanthier said.


The two pandas arrived in Canada in 2014 as part of a 10-year agreement between Canada and China over the animal's protection and research.
