Thailand's government issued a warning Tuesday (March 31) that April Fool's Day jokes about the Covid-19 (coronavirus) are punishable by a law which carries a sentence of up to five years in prison.

The government's Public Relations Department posted an infographic on its Twitter account on Tuesday saying "it's against the law to fake having Covid-19 this April Fools' Day."

"People around the world are suffering from #Covid19 outbreak, and that's reason enough why people should be more considerate and not use this as a prank or a joke," the post's accompanying text said.
