The Thai Government, represented by the Covid19 Coronavirus Situational Administration (CCSA) spokesperson Dr. Taweesin Visanuyothin, announced 27 new confirmed cases of the Covid-19 Coronavirus at their daily press conference this morning.
There were zero confirmed new deaths, leaving the overall death toll since the start of the outbreak at 47. This was the third day in a row with no new deaths attributed to the virus.
This is the lowest number of daily cases reported since March 14, the Government noted in their press conference.
71 people were noted as fully recovered and released from hospitals, bringing the total of recoveries in Thailand from the Coronavirus to 1,999 with 746 people still undergoing treatment in hospitals, the majority of those being located in the Bangkok area.
Chonburi, the home province of Pattaya and The Pattaya News, reported 0 new cases today as proactive testing continues in the local area on high risk groups to determine if there are signs of an underlying widespread infection in Pattaya of individuals who are asymptomatic. So far, the tests, averaging several hundred a day, have only given one positive who was later found to be a close contact of a previous confirmed Covid-19 patient.
Thailand has overall been showing steadily decreasing Covid-19 cases over the past several weeks, which the Government attributes to the National Curfew, increasing amounts of testing, domestic and International travel restrictions and careful management of “hot zones” where a large number of cases were found, such as Phuket and Pattaya.
