A spokesman for the country’s newly formed Covid-19 Situation Administration Thailand confirmed 136 new Covid-19 coronavirus cases today, raising the total number of infections to 1,524. Deaths in the Kingdom remain at 7.

Infections in Thailand are likely to keep rising, and in a reversal of the earlier trend, recent new cases have been reported more in the countryside than in Bangkok.

As of yesterday, 54% of Covid-19 infections were found outside Bangkok.

The areas that are under strict monitoring for spread of the virus are: Bangkok Metropolitan Region, Chonburi, Phuket, Krabi, southern provinces (Narathiwat, Pattani, Songkhla and Yala), Sa Kaeo, and Ubon Ratchathani province in the north east.

As of 1:10pm Thai time on today (March 30), the virus had infected more than 723,000 people worldwide, with 34,005 deaths reported.
