Regarding the non-prison local infections, the highest numbers of patients were reported in Bangkok with 973, followed by Phetchaburi with 658 (at an electronics industrial estate), Samut Prakan with 221, Nonthaburi with 102 (driven by a recently-found cluster at a new construction worker camp), Samut Sakhon with 55, and Chonburi with 42.

Regarding a new Covid-19 variant which reportedly originated from Thailand that had been detected in the United Kingdom among people who had arrived from Egypt yesterday, Thailand’s Department of Disease Control rejected it as wrong and stressed that the variant investigation is still undergoing. Thailand’s Department of Science has also stated that calling it the “Thai variant” is incorrect.  It is noted that there is no evidence the variant is either more transmissible or causes more serious health implications.

Meanwhile, Thailand’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also approved China’s Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine for emergency use, making it the fifth vaccine in Thailand that has officially been approved.

As of today, 4,044 people fully recovered in the past 24 hours and have been released from field hospitals and quarantine centers. Thailand has now reached a total of 144,976 cases with 97,872 recoveries and a total of 954 deaths since the start of the pandemic. About 104,583 people received their first shot of a Covid-19 vaccination and another 33,585 people received their second shot yesterday, marking a total number of 3,347,050 vaccinated people in Thailand who have received at least one dose of a vaccine.
