Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam said on Friday (June 26) that the only way to control the Covid-19 situation after emergency is lifted will be to make the law stronger.
“But I’m not sure if only one law needs to be amended or more,” he said.
Wissanu explained that as things stand, people cannot be ordered to wear face masks under the Communicative Disease Act.
