A 72 year old British man died after contracting Covid-19, according to the CCSA. The man had pre-existing health conditions including lung cancer, diabetes and hypothyroidism. He arrived in Thailand on December 7 and started experiencing Covid-19 symptoms 4 days later. He died yesterday.

The other virus-related fatality is a 53 year old Thai man from Pathum Thani, just north of Bangkok. The man also had diabetes. During the New Year holiday, he travelled to Chanthaburi, Phetchaburi and Nonthaburi. He started experiencing Covid-19 symptoms sometime after the holiday. On January 5, he was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia. He died on January 10.

Out of the 271 new Covid-19 cases, 78 are local transmissions, 181 cases were detected in proactive testing campaigns, 11 cases detected in quarantine facilities and the last case was a woman who was tested positive after allegedly crossing at the Thai-Malaysia border illegally.

Out of the 181 cases detected in proactive testing, 172 cases were found in Samut Sakhon, 1 in Chachoengsao, 5 in Chon Buri and 3 in Rayong. The vast majority of those cases are migrants.
