Dr. Taweesin Visanuyothin, the spokesman for the Thailand Covid-19 Coronavirus Situation Center, also known as the CCSA, announced a total of 32 new cases of Covid-19 this morning at a daily press conference addressing the current results to the Kingdom of Thailand.
2765 people have been infected since the start of the outbreak in January, with 32 additional cases found in the past 24 hours. Two cases were found in Chonburi, both close personal contacts of a previous confirmed case.
In a piece of encouraging news the spokesman told the press that an additional 141 people had recovered from the disease, bringing the total number of recovered to 1,928.
There were no additional deaths reported. The country has had 47 deaths since the start of the Covid-19 outbreak.
Thailand has begun repatriation of more Thai Citizens from Malaysia and overseas and as a result imported cases from other countries are expected to rise, according to Dr. Taweesin. However, all those who are arriving in the country are required to have a mandatory state quarantine period for two weeks. The country is focused on bringing down non imported, or local spread cases, even further.
Dr. Taweesin noted once more that the CCSA would start discussing potentially reopening some business next week, albeit with strict guidelines, as millions remain out of work and the economic situation continues to worsen with headlines dominated by long lines at food charity give aways nationwide.
