187 new Covid-19 cases and 2 deaths were reported today in the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s daily briefing. There are currently 2,950 active cases in Thailand. Since the start of the pandemic, the CCSA has reported a total of 13,687 Covid-19 cases and 75 coronavirus-related deaths.

A 61 year old British man died after testing positive for Covid-19. The man recently travelled to Thailand from abroad. While in an alternative state quarantine hotel, he reported coronavirus-like symptoms. He tested positive for Covid-19 and was admitted to a hospital in Bangkok. Health officials say he had shortness of breath and died yesterday. It’s unclear if the man had any pre-existing conditions.

A 56 year old Thai woman died after testing positive for Covid-19. Health officials say the woman’s family members had come in close contact with someone infected with Covid-19. The woman had pre-existing conditions of epilepsy and stroke.

Out of the 187 new Covid-19 cases, 116 were detected through a proactive testing campaign primarily in Samut Sakhon, 61 cases are local transmissions and 10 cases involve those who recently entered Thailand.

Bangkok, Chon Buri and Samut Sakhon have the highest number of Covid-19 patients.

    Samut Sakhon,5500 tested 900 covid to add so total 1100,not bad first real testing shows almost 20% infected, guess it’s what we all knew ,the countries riddled with it.And please don’t say it’s just in one province ,they don’t really test in others.Shame ,the could off stopped it again if they locked down earlier, Australia and NZ proved that.

    99.5% survival rate. Amazing how the stats change when countries (like Thailand) have no financial incentive for labeling everything a covid death 🙂

    I agree with David’s assessment, above, but his numbers are a bit off.
    Early on the 25th. saw 187 new covid 19 cases, but later in the day found 914 new cases giving a total of 1288. But The Thaiger news video didn’t share those higher numbers.
    The 24th. and 25th. show a total of 1447 new cases.

    [The total number of (new) local cases since the new wave began on Dec 15 last year reached five digits over the past 24 hours at 10,409, Dr Taweesilp said.] – from Bangkok Post

    The report # is 1111 , and it takes time, but it works.
