Ms Narumon said the CCSA proposed the extension because the coronavirus pandemic was still at serious levels in many parts of the world.

With the fifth phase of the relaxing of restrictions beginning tomorrow, powers under the executive decree for administration in emergency situations were still needed to control travel in and out of the country and support the tracking and quarantine of people suspected of being infected with the virus, she said.

It was also needed to regulate business and other activities in order to reduce the risk of a second wave of the pandemic.

Ms Narumon said the decree would be enforced along with the loosening of restrictions, without affecting people’s way of life, amid efforts to keep the country’s economy moving.
