305 new Covid-19 cases and 1 death were reported today in the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s daily briefing. Thailand now has 5,048 active Covid-19 cases. In total, there have been 9,636 Covid-19 cases and 67 coronavirus virus-related deaths reported since last year.

An 88 year old cancer patient who had recently travelled to Rayong died yesterday after testing positive for Covid-19. CCSA says the case is linked to a gambling den in the province and believes the man caught the virus from his son who had visited him on December 22. The man tested positive for Covid-19 on Sunday. Nation Thailand says his symptoms worsened and his body stopped responding to treatment.

In Samut Sakhon, 154 cases were reported. 109 of those cases were found in a proactive testing campaign after the outbreak at a shrimp market, which affected hundreds of migrant workers in the area. 40 of the other cases in the provinces are people who recently visited high risk areas. 5 cases are under investigation.
