Thailand cases rise as government prepares to invoke emergency

Post by Chrisemmy »

Confirmed cases of coronavirus in Thailand rose to 934 on Wednesday, a day before a state of emergency is due to come into force, giving the government sweeping powers.

A health official said a further 107 people had been diagnosed with the infection.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, who first took power in a coup in 2014, said emergency rule would begin on Thursday. The decree allows the government to "censor or shut down the media if deemed necessary", among other measures.
