Thailand announces 30 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 and two additional deaths


Dr. Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesman of the Covid-19 Coronavirus Situation Center in Bangkok, confirmed to the press this morning that Thailand had thirty new confirmed cases of Covid-19 and two additional deaths.

Banglamung, which is where Pattaya is located, had two additional cases. This brings the total to 83 in Chonburi. Five more people were released this morning and fully recovered as well.

One is a Thai male who is a direct close contact of a previous case and one is a Thai medical staff member who works with Covid-19 patients.

Chonburi is also testing hundreds of high risk local residents daily in Pattaya for signs of Covid-19. So far, they have not found signs of local spread.

A high risk person is one who works primarily with foreigners or tourists or has an occupation where they meet many people, such as Immigration or a taxi driver.

Chonburi has also announced that if the current low trend continues they plan to reopen businesses on May 1.
