Zero new cases of Covid-19 in Chonburi, third day in a row


The Chonburi Department of Public Health announced zero new confirmed cases of the Covid-19 Coronavirus today for the third day in a row in the province.

In the past six days only one case has been discovered and all of their close contacts have tested negative.

The provincial health office announced they will continue doing targeted mass testing for the entire next week in the community. They will be testing people in high risk groups for free throughout the province.

These groups comprise those who worked or visited places recently on timelines like the Chonburi Provincial Employment Office, migrant workers living in densely packed camps, people with any symptoms of Covid-19, and people who work with the public like taxi drivers and supermarket employees.

The Department did not say if any measures or restrictions will be lifted any time soon directly. Currently, the province remains under stiff travel restrictions and closures of many businesses. However, the provincial Administrative Organization President, Wittaya Khunplume, said last night on his social media the province is preparing to propose to the government to be downgraded from a deep red high-risk zone to an orange zone and ease measures.

There is no timeline or date for this proposal, however, the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration is due to meet on January 31st to officially discuss measures and restrictions.
