Bangkok, June 30 Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has defended his government's decision to extend the national state of emergency until the end of July, noting that there was still a high risk of a second wave of COVID-19 infections.

While the country has entered the 5th phase of lockdown relaxation, Prayut on Monday said the decree had nothing to do with his government clinging onto power, reports Xinhua news agency.

"The presence of emergency decree will empower the government the legal means to contain COVID-19," explained Prayut.
