Those found lying or spreading false information about Covid-19 infections on April Fool’s Day (April 1) will face strict punishment, warned Kosonlavat Intujunyong, deputy spokesman of the Office of the Attorney General.
During April Fool’s Day in many countries, people play jokes or spread fake news for fun. In Thailand before Covid-19, some news outlets posted 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 jail or pay a hefty fine.
