Coronavirus: Special Powers Granted to Gov’t to Fight Pandemic

Lawmakers on Monday passed a bill aimed at extending a state of emergency and granting the government special powers to take extraordinary measures to contain the spread of novel coronavirus.

Among the measures, flouting quarantine regulations is punishable by up to three years in prison. Also, anyone who disseminates fake news or distorted real information in a way that obstructs the effectiveness of the response to the epidemic is a crime punishable by 1-5 years in prison.
