The number of Covid-19 Coronavirus cases in Thailand continues to show a decreasing trend as today the Thai Government announced 28 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 and one additional death, an 85 year old Thai woman with multiple prior health problems.
Chonburi, which is where Pattaya is located, announced zero new cases for the second day in a row and fourth day this week. Another seven people were released and fully recovered in the area as well.
This brings the total number of cases so far in Thailand to 2,700, with 47 deaths. 964 people remain in treatment in the hospital.
96 more people were released and fully recovered from hospitals today leading to the full number of those released being 1,689.
The Thai Government said that the downward trend was “a good sign”, however, stated that lowering of restrictions and re-opening business across the country would not be discussed until the last week of the month and signs that the downward trend was continuing.
Proactive testing continues to be done in hot zone areas such as Pattaya and Phuket and, so far, shows limited to no signs of local widespread infection. Several hundred tests a day are being done in Pattaya at the Grand Bella hotel of volunteers from high risk groups that are still exposed to many people and, so far, have only shown one positive this week-a person who ended up being a close contact of a previous confirmed Covid-19 patient.
