The Cabinet today approved allocation of Bt204 million from the 2020 central budget to fund emergency disease controls in case Covid-19 infections surge.

The money will be used by the Public Health Ministry if a second wave of the virus hits Thailand.

The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) reported five new cases, all found in state quarantine, over a 24-hour period on Tuesday.

Meanwhile the Cabinet also approved in principle the Interior Ministry's proposal to add Covid-19 to the list of diseases controlled under Section 12 of the immigration law.

The move will ban Covid-19 patients from entering or settling in Thailand.
