1,458 new Covid-19 cases and 2 deaths were reported today in the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s daily briefing, stabilising the recent upward spike of new infections since the outbreaks at nightlife venues in Bangkok. Since April 1, 17,780 Covid-19 cases and 16 deaths have been reported by the CCSA.

The 2 additional Covid-related deaths today were a 56 year old Thai woman from Bangkok, who suffered from diabetes, kidney disease and obesity, and a 32 year old Thai man from Nonthaburi who had allergies and lung disease.

There are 17,162 people receiving treatment for Covid-19, an active case count far higher than the last peak in February which topped at 7,181 active cases. Since the start of the pandemic last year, the CCSA has reported a total of 46,643 coronavirus infections.

The English-language spokesperson for the CCSA, Natapanu Nopakun, says they hope the the daily case count will go down to around 1,000.

Bangkok topped today’s count with 365 cases. Here are the totals announced today for the other provinces around the country…

CCSA Update: 1,458 new Covid-19 cases, provincial totals | News by ThaigerHotlines for those requesting hospital beds have been “overwhelmed,” according to Natapanu. There is now a LINE messenger contact for people infected with Covid-19 to request a hospital bed. Those seeking a bed can send a LINE message to @sabaideebot with their name, lab results, ID number, telephone number and address.

Some provinces have imposed orders requiring people to wear face masks in public. Those who violate the emergency orders face fines up to 20,000 baht. Those provinces include Surat Thani, Phuket, Kanchanaburi, Yala, Trang, Narathiwat, Pattani and Songkhla.

So far, only 107,663 people in Thailand have received both doses of the vaccine against Covid-19.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration is suspending services in 50 districts, expect for the issuing of death and birth certificates. The BMA is also limited services to 30 people per day.

Thailand Post has changed its hours. Main branches will now be open until 6pm which general branches will be open until 3pm. Thailand Post branches in department stores will be open until 7pm.

    Looks like we’re having a 1,400 to 1,500 run, this week, from these past 3 days’ figures, like we had a 900 to 1,000 week, last week. There is just something too sequential in the numbers that CCSA expects us to believe . . . not that I’m a cynic, or anything negative like that.

    Close the whole Country and screw up business, investment and tourism for two deaths ONLY. More people died on Thai Highways during recent Festival – Are you crazy ? 42 Million unborn Children World Wide are killed due to Abortion in 2019 alone.
