After months of strict disease control measures to contain the Covid-19 outbreak, the epicentre of the recent wave of infections, Samut Sakhon, is lifting its so-called “bubble and seal” measures which quarantined migrant workers at factories where they worked. Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration deputy spokesperson Apisamai Srirangsan says the measures are being lifted today.

39 new Covid-19 cases were reported today in the CCSA’s daily briefing. There are 509 active Covid-19 cases in Thailand. Since the start of the pandemic last year, the CCSA has reported a total of 26,540 coronavirus infections and 85 deaths.

Out of the 39 new cases, 21 cases transmitted in high risk areas, 13 cases were detected in active case finding and 5 cases were detected in quarantine for those travelling to Thailand from overseas.
