As of October 1st, there is no CCSA or extension of the emergency decree

In Thailand on Friday, there were 2,110 confirmed instances of Covid-19, 27 fatalities, and 2,028 people who had recovered and been released from the hospital.
In accordance with the government’s decision to lower Covid-19 from a “serious communicable disease” to a “communicable disease under monitoring,” according to Dr. Udom Kachintorn, a CCSA advisor, the action has been taken. The CCSA anticipates a roughly one-month plateau in new patient enrollment followed by a drop in mid-October. Approximately 70,000 confirmed Covid-19 patients are currently living in isolation in hospitals or at home in Thailand, according to Udom, and the majority of them have minimal or no symptoms. According to him, starting on October 1 the Emergency Decree on Public Administration in Emergency Situations, which has been in effect since March 24, 2020, will be superseded by the Communicable Disease Act of 2015. He explained that starting on October 1 Covid-19 will be under monitoring but not endemic, necessitating the continued use of facemasks in crowded public areas. The CCSA will put forth recommendations for individuals to follow before it dissolves, including advice on how to get medical attention now that Covid-19 has been downgraded. In addition to going to the hospital, according to Udom, Covid-19 users can also get telemedicine services through the National Health Security Office (NHSO).

Three apps have been used by the NHSO to treat Covid-19 users. They are Clicknic for high-risk individuals (those over 60 or those with any of eight chronic illnesses), Good Doctor Technology, and MorDee, which only frequently treat “green” patients or those with minor symptoms.
Udom predicts that by the end of the year, the number of hospitalized patients would fall to roughly 1,000 per day, and the number of daily deaths should fall to about 10. Since March 24, 2020, the emergency declaration has been extended a total of 19 times to help the government more effectively contain the outbreak. The most recent extension expired on September 30. Since January 1, 2022, there have been 2,406,875 total cases throughout the nation, with 10,273 fatalities. On Friday, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha gave his approval for the emergency declaration to Thailand lifted and the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) to be dissolved on October 1.
