Dr. Thaweesin said the proposal to extend the emergency decree for another month was for safety reasons but it was highly possible that the curfew time would be adjusted.
Defense Forces chief Gen Pornpipat Benyasri said in the CCSA meeting that if people cooperate well without partying or gathering and the number of new infections drops, night curfew is not necessary, according to Dr. Thaweesin.
However, decision will be made in the next CCSA meeting, he added.
The CCSA also introduced a new CCSA assistant spokesperson Dr. Panprapa Yongtrakul, who is an advisor to the Public Health Minister. She will give a press briefing on weekends, starting tomorrow. Dr. Panprapa is also Miss Thailand 2008. (TNA)
