At the daily press conference from the Covid-19 Situational Administration Center in Bangkok, in conjunction with the Ministry of Public Health and the Department of Disease Control, Thailand announced 89 new, confirmed cases of the Covid-19 Coronavirus this morning as well as one additional death.
This is the lowest number in some time, showing a continuing downward trend in confirmed cases as Thailand has set in place many new restrictions in the past week.
This brings the total number of confirmed cases to 2067, with twenty total deaths.
612 of those cases are fully recovered and released.
The stricter restrictions, which include nationwide closures of nearly all non essential businesses, tough checkpoints between provinces, a nationwide night-time curfew, closure of some provinces such as Phuket and Yala, banning of all mass gatherings and events, trains and bus transportation mostly halted and provincial rules ranging from mandatory mask wearing to alcohol bans in some individual provinces, have been far ranging and appear to be making some impact according to medical observers.
Chonburi and Pattaya has not announced its cases yet today, we will provide them here at The Pattaya News when that information is released. This comes as Pattaya is considering a total closure of the city as well.
