Thai warnings to swell to 85 per cent

| May 24, 2013

Thailand’s deputy public health minister, Dr. Chonlanan Srikeaw, has announced that a new anti-smoking law will require cigarette packs to carry bigger health warnings, according to a story in the Pattaya Mail.

A new law, which will be implemented on October 2, will stipulate that cigarette warning labels must cover 85 per cent of packs.

Last year, smokers accounted for about 21 per cent of Thailand’s population of people 15 years of age and older: about 11 million.
