The extension of the Emergency Decree will be effective from October 1st to the 31st. This is the sixth official extension since the decree was first implemented in April.

The cabinet believes that by extending the decree, Thailand would maintain its low cases of local transmission and its citizens would remain secured and safe against the Covid-19 coronavirus.

The extension does not relate to the political tensions and movements of the pro-democracy demonstrations in the country, according to the CCSA spokesman Dr. Taweesin Visanuyothin.
