Today, the Centre of Covid-19 Administration reported 3 new cases of the coronavirus with no additional deaths. This takes the total number of infections in Thailand to 3,151 and 58 deaths since the beginning of the outbreak. Today also marks the 28th consecutive day with no confirmed local transmissions of Covid-19, a milestone that is sure to give the CCSA more comfort in relaxing any remaining restrictions imposed on Thai society.

An additional 4 people have recovered from the disease over the past 24 hours, leaving 71 remaining in hospitals.

The 3 new cases were reported as Thai nationals returning from India and were detected with the virus in state quarantine, according to Dr Taweesilp, the spokesman for the government’s CCSA.

“All 3 patients were female, aged 11, 21, and 34, who returned to Thailand on June 18 and went into Chon Buri state quarantine, all were reported as asymptomatic.”

“The 28 day milestone for local transmissions is important because 4 weeks is thought to be the maximum period of time the virus can live in a person without showing symptoms.”

The spokesman also mentions that the administration was coordinating with Burmeser authorities regarding 23 coronavirus cases found among migrants deported from Thailand.
