Thailand’s National Covid-19 Coronavirus Disease Management Centre has announced 111 new confirmed cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus today. Total cases now stand at 2,369 nationwide. 3 foreign men died, pushing the total death toll up to 30. 42 of today’s new cases were all returnees from a religious festival in Indonesia.

The new fatalities include a 48 year old Russian man in Pattaya, a 69 year old Indian man, and a 69 year old American man. Spokesperson Taweesin Visanuyothin says that we have to connect the virus to travellers from overseas.

“I was just happy yesterday… Now we see that the numbers went back up to 3 digits.”

Taweesin was referring to yesterday’s findings, which recorded a dip to only 38 new infections, the lowest in weeks. Of the 111 cases announced today, 69 got the virus from contact with the infected, while 42 were those returning from a religious festival in Indonesia.

Phuket is the province with the highest percentage of active Covid-19 cases, nearly 40 people per 100,000 population, while Bangkok has a rate of 21.6 people per 100,000. Satun province has been added to the list of provinces with Covide-19, mainly due to Thais returning from Indonesia.

A total of 889 people have recovered from the virus in Thailand.

“The solution will be the same: social distancing and wearing masks.”
