BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's central bank said bad loans were likely to increase somewhat, but were not a worry yet as the country deals with a third wave of coronavirus infections.

The central bank will closely monitor the situation, Deputy Governor Ronadol Numnonda told a briefing on the extension of debt relief measures until the end of the year.
