National Security Council has recommended extending the emergency decree until June 30, as the global situation is still worrying.

Although Thailand has so far successfully controlled the spread of the coronavirus, a possible second-phase of Covid-19 disease following the easing of the nationwide lockdown would be more severe, according to General Somsak, secretary-general of National Security Council (NSC)

Thailand’s Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has endorsed the proposal of the National Security Council to extend the country’s current state of emergency until the end of June

The CCSA resolution will be forwarded to the cabinet next week for a decision.

The government enforced the state of emergency on March 26 until April 30 and imposed a 10pm to 4am curfew on April 3. On April 27, the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) extended the state of emergency to the end of May.

The Thai government has approved the second phase of the easing of lockdown measures from May 17 as the country logged zero new cases for the second time.

The government also allowed stores in department stores or communities mall such as consumption, computers, electrical appliances, bedding, building materials, furniture, office supplies, flowers, clothes, cosmetics and sport equipment to reopen from May 17th onwards.

But restrictions on transportation – no regular international transport, and strict screening of inter-provincial transport, remain unchanged.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) on May 17th has renewed the ban on international commercial flights into the kingdom until the end of June to continue the fight against Covid-19.
