DOES THE LAW RESTRICT PEOPLE’S RIGHT TO CONTROL THE COVID19 INFECTIOUS DISEASE IN THAILAND
In order to study the legal measures to restrict people’s rights to control against COVID 19, the research results indicated that legal measures are important measures to prevent the epidemic that the government has to enforce and announce to the people as a strict implementation and cooperation with officials. With no legal measure to control the situation, people may not cooperate in providing true information and attending for treatment. There can be various types of business operations gathering people together or protest, which result in more serious and uncontrollable epidemic situation. This will have serious consequences on the overall safety of the public, the economic and social impact inevitably. Thailand needs to enforce special laws that empower government officials to prevent, correct, suppress and deal with violent situations, which may affect the national stability. Therefore, Thailand needs to find a way to integrate all public and private sectors to protect the safety of human beings, which is more important than personal freedom.
