Thailand discovered 357 domestic infections among 369 total new Covid-19 cases in the past 24 hours, the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) spokesperson Apisamai Srirangsan announced this morning, January 18th.

The other 275 local infections were discovered in Samut Sakhon with 269, Bangkok 5, and Chonburi 1 during active case finding by provincial public health authorities. All of them are both Thai and migrant workers and are now at state quarantine with no exposure to the general population.

All of the infections found in active case finding are currently in strict state quarantine at provided areas under public health supervision with no exposure to the general public, according to the CCSA. This means that 82 cases were found locally transmitted today in Thailand.
