1,013 people have completely recovered and been released from hospital, 73 of them in the past 24 hours.

Today’s one death was described as a 43 year old Thai Woman in Chachoengsao province, east of Bangkok, who also suffered from lupus. A spokesman said the dead woman was a vendor who suffered from systemic lupus erythematosus.

She was taken to a hospital on Monday with a fever of 38.5°C, diarrhea, vomiting, panting and exhaustion. Her blood pressure dropped to 85/64 and she soon needed a ventilator. She was found to have severe pneumonia. She died on Tuesday and her Covid-19 test result came back yesterday. It was positive.
