The number of people recovered from the Covid-19 Coronavirus in Thailand is now higher then the number of people currently in the hospital for the first time, according to the Thai Public Health Ministry.
A total of 1,288 people have recovered from the Covid-19 Coronavirus in Thailand and 1,251 remain under treatment in hospitals.
There have been a grand total of 2,579 cases and 40 deaths since the start of the outbreak and tracking of cases in January.

Chonburi, which is where Pattaya is located, released the information this morning that no additional cases were confirmed in the area today. This comes as Pattaya has begun proactive testing of roughly two hundred high risk people a day at the Grand Bella hotel. The high risk groups include people who work with many foreigners and tourists, such as Immigration officers, those who have recently traveled and come to Chonburi from other provinces and countries, residents and employees of places where confirmed cases of Covid-19 have been found and wider contacts of previous cases.
