Thailand will soon say goodbye to the “draconian measures” that threatened for two years – including tourists – with serious fines. It is about the mask regime, which is finally planned to be canceled throughout the kingdom.
The National Committee for Infectious Diseases has already completed a draft announcement reflecting the reduction in the risk of coronavirus infection in the country, according to The Bangkok Post. In particular, it will be announced that the Ministry of Health will soon cancel the mandatory wearing of masks and the corresponding fines for violation of the mask regime. That is, to begin with, the Minister of Health must approve the announcement. After approval, the document will be published in the Royal Gazette and will come into force.
Recall that the strict mask regime in Thailand has lasted for the past two years. Its violators were threatened with fines from 6,000 baht (about 10,000 rubles) to 20,000 baht for “malicious repeat offenders.” And now the situation is returning to the norm two years ago – to the general joy of tourists.
