The government needed to continuously impose the executive decree on public administration in emergency situations for swift disease control, according to a spokesman.
Dr Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration, said the government had to maintain the executive decree imposition for another month because it had stronger disease control effects covering international travel, the monitoring of at-risk people, disease surveillance, the opening and closure of businesses and activities and swift and united efforts to contain the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
“The 5th round of business/activity resumption covers all categories of business and activities so that people can resume normal life. The emergency decree is partly imposed and does not limit people’s rights. However, everyone must protect and take good care of themselves,” the CCSA spokesman said.
Dr Taweesin said that CCSA continued to restrict flights by maintaining its authority to give a green light to every flight.
He added that if the COVID-19 situation further improved, press conferences on it would be on Mondays and Thursdays. (TNA)
