In many countries, people play jokes or spread fake news on April 1. Some publishers even print false reports to poke fun at readers or give them a laugh the following day.
This year, however, the joke might be on you – and it could be a harsh one at that.
Sharing false information or lying about the Covid-19 situation or infections can land you in prison for up to two years or you can be fined up to Bt40,000.
