Thailand announces only three new cases of Covid-19, one imported from overseas


At the daily press conference of the Covid19 Coronavirus Situation Administration or CCSA led by Spokesman Taweesin Visanuyothin, the CCSA announced only three new cases of the Covid19 Coronavirus in the Kingdom of Thailand.

Of the three cases, one was imported from a Thai returnee overseas who is in state quarantine. Two were family members of a previous confirmed case in Bangkok.

Chonburi has reached nine consecutive days with zero new cases of the virus. Pattaya City will reach three weeks with no new cases on May 5, which is when the checkpoints surrounding the city are scheduled to be removed.

Thailand has had another seven patients discharged from the hospital today, leaving only 176 in hospitals nationwide under treatment for Covid19. There have been 54 deaths since the start of the outbreak, with none recorded in several days.

Today marks the first day of loosening selected restrictions in the country, with certain venues reopening like dine in restaurants and non essential shops such as clothing. They face strict hygiene rules as the country slowly gets back to normal.
