Chonburi, however, reported 0 new confirmed cases for today.
The majority of the new cases are in Phuket, according to officials, specifically in and around the Bangla area. Officials have begun random testing of residents in the high risk areas and those who have recently traveled which is helping to find additional people who have Covid-19.
