Thai Cabinet officially approves another Emergency Decree extension nationwide until end of February


National –

A Thai Cabinet committee today, January 5th, has agreed to approve another extension of the Emergency Decree nationwide today, January 5th, following the proposal from the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) committee yesterday.

The decree is currently in use until January 15th and will officially be extended for another 45 days, from January 16th to February 28th, according to government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri.

This follows the seriously increasing number of domestic infections of Covid-19 Coronavirus cases in the Kingdom since a major cluster at the Samut Sakhon shrimp market last month.

The decree gives the Thai Government extraordinary powers and the ability to implement policies and procedures like restricting travel and having road checkpoints to help control the Covid-19 coronavirus.
