Thailand confirms three new cases of Covid-19, two are imported cases


At a daily press briefing by the Covid19 Coronavirus Situation Administration, the spokesman of the CCSA confirmed three new cases of the Covid-19 Coronavirus.

Two of the cases are imported from Thai Nationals recently repatriated from Kazakhstan. One case is a Thai woman in Yala who was infected from a close contact who had been to Malaysia and lives on the Southern Border. This was the first locally spread case in several days, although directly attributed to travel from a different country.

Thailand has had a total of 2,992 cases of the virus as of this morning. 2,772 of those cases have fully recovered and been released from hospitals.

There have been 55 deaths due to the virus in Thailand. The most recent was a 69 year old Australian national and Phuket hotel general manager who passed away earlier this week.

Thailand has been in single digits for new cases for nine days with the exception of one day in which a cluster was located at an illegal immigrant detainee facility at the Malaysian Border.
